Representatives for the National Association of Realtors have engaged in talks with U.S. Justice Department officials in an effort to resolve a 2-year-old antitrust lawsuit, and both parties are open to continuing the dialogue, according to a spokesman for the Realtor trade group.

“There have been negotiations up to this point,” said Lucien Salvant, a NAR spokesman, in late December. He said that “talks will continue,” as both parties are open to the discussions. DOJ officials offered no comment about the talks.
