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.
