Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, Inc.; Proposed Final Judgment and Competitive Impact Statement Notice is hereby given pursuant to the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act, 15 U.S.C. 16(b)–(h), that a proposed Final Judgment, Stipulation, and Competitive Impact Statement have been filed with the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina in United States of America v. Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, Inc., No. 3:08–CV–1786–SB. On May 2, 2008, the United States filed a Complaint alleging that Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (‘‘CMLS’’) violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 1, by denying consumers choice of innovative fee-for-service business models available to consumers in other parts of South Carolina and by adopting burdensome prerequisites to membership that prevented some real estate brokers, who would likely compete aggressively on price, from becoming members of CMLS. The proposed Final Judgment, filed on May 4, 2009, requires CMLS to repeal its VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:43 May 14, 2009 Jkt 217001 United States of America, Plaintiff, v. Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, Inc., Defendant Civil Action No. Date: May 2, 2008 Judge: Complaint for Equitable Relief for Violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1 The United States of America, by its attorneys acting under the direction of the Attorney General, brings this civil antitrust action pursuant to Section 4 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 4, against Defendant Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (‘‘CMLS’’), to obtain equitable and other relief to prevent and remedy violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 1. The United States complains and alleges as follows: I. Introduction 1. The United States brings this action to prevent CMLS from enforcing rules, regulations, by-laws, policies, and procedures (collectively ‘‘Rules’’) that unreasonably restrain competition among real estate brokers in Columbia, PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22965 South Carolina and the surrounding areas (‘‘Columbia Area’’). 2. CMLS is a joint venture comprised of brokers who compete with each other to sell brokerage services in the Columbia Area. CMLS, like other multiple listing services, provides services to its members, including an electronic database of information relating to past and current home listings in the Columbia Area. The database serves as a clearinghouse for the members to communicate information among themselves, such as descriptions of the listed properties for sale and offers to compensate other members if they locate buyers. In addition, the database allows members who represent buyers to search for nearly all the listed properties in the area that match the buyer’s needs. By providing an efficient means of exchanging information on home listings, multiple listing services benefit buyers and sellers of real estate, and in turn, buyers of real estate brokerage services, in their service areas. 3. However, that same role makes access to CMLS’s database—and therefore membership in CMLS— critically important for any broker seeking to serve clients efficiently in the Columbia Area. Access to the services provided by CMLS is key to being a successful broker, and CMLS is the only provider of such services in the Columbia Area. Therefore, brokers seeking to provide brokerage services in the Columbia Area need to be members of CMLS. 4. CMLS, its Board of Trustees (‘‘Board’’), and its members have adopted Rules that govern the conduct and business practices of its approximately 370 members and set standards for the admission of new members. Through these Rules, CMLS’s Board and its members have unreasonably inhibited competition over the method of providing brokerage services to consumers in the Columbia Area and have stabilized the price those consumers pay for brokerage services. For example, CMLS’s Rules prevent members from providing a set of brokerage services that includes less than the full array of services that brokers traditionally have provided— even if a consumer prefers to save money by purchasing less than all of such services. Additionally, CMLS’s Rules require members to use a standard, pre-approved contract that, among other things, prevents its members from offering to a home seller the option of avoiding paying the broker a commission if the seller finds the buyer on her own.
