Zillow could owe $2B in damages, Move and NAR allege

  • Move and the National Association of Realtors claim Zillow and two of its execs are liable for $2 billion in damages.
  • That figure may take into account Zillow's alleged foiling of a merger between Move and Trulia and of Move's real estate platform strategy.
  • Zillow's attorneys claim the trade secrets claimed by Move and NAR in the suit are overly "broad" and based on information that has already been publicly disclosed.

Zillow could be in for a whopper of a bill in the two-year-old litigation between the company and its biggest rival, realtor.com operator Move Inc. “The scope of this case — and damages claim — is staggering,” attorneys for Zillow, Samuelson and Beardsley said in a legal filing publicly released today.
