Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island, Inc., 18 Bow Circle, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928, Defendant Civil Action No.9 :07–CV–3435–SB Filed: 10/16/07 Complaint for Equitable Relief for Violation of 15 U.S.C. 1 Sherman Antitrust Act Complaint The United States of America, by its attorneys acting under the direction of the acting Attorney General, brings this civil antitrust action against Defendant Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island, Inc. (‘‘Hilton Head MLS’’) to obtain equitable and other relief for violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 1, as amended. Introduction 1. The United States brings this action to enjoin the Defendant from enforcing certain of its rules that unreasonably restrain competition among real estate brokers in the Hilton Head, South Carolina area Defendant is a multiple listing service, which is controlled by its members who are real estate brokers competing to sell brokerage services to consumers in the Hilton Head area. 2. Defendant provides a variety of services to its members, including the maintenance of a database of past and current listings of properties for sale in the Hilton Head area. Access to the database is critical to being a successful broker. Therefore, brokers seeking to provide brokerage services in the Hilton Head area need to be members of the Hilton Head MLS. 3. By its rules, Defendant denies membership to brokers who would likely compete aggressively on price or would introduce Internet-based brokerage into the market, and imposes unreasonable membership costs on publicly-owned brokerage companies.
