Class Action Suit Filed Against West Penn MLS

The Firm filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against the West Penn Multi-Listing Service (MLS) and many of the real estate brokerages that are members of the MLS (including Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, Inc.; Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC; Freeman Realty Company; Everest Consulting Group LP d/b/a Northwood Realty Services; and Prudential Preferred Realty) for imposing anticompetitive rules and practices relating to real estate sales.  Taken together, these rules and practices have discouraged competition in price. 

As a result of defendants’ conduct, customers of MLS real estate brokerage services in Western Pennsylvania had fewer choices of service options and paid higher prices for real estate brokerage services than did customers in other parts of the country.
