The REALTOR cartel might finally have what's coming to it. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) IS a Criminal cartel, and it ought to be prosecuted as such: FELONIES for Brokers, Realtors, and "Agents". Spamming places like Craigslist with their disgustingly overpriced rentals and sales, using coercive tactics in asking for leases or other rent terms, and LYING to people looking for a place to live. They don't care whose savings they STEAL, they just want to escape without liability. Sounds like the Trump MO, doesn't it?

Class-action lawsuits like this are how change happens. The financial crisis of 2008 revealed a lot about the Greed of Bush-era economics.

"In Moerhl v National Association Realtors (NAR), home sellers from across the nation are claiming that NAR’s compensation policies—which require all member brokers demand blanket, non-negotiable buyer-side commission fees when listing a home on a Multiple Listing Service—is a violation of antitrust law. Realogy Holdings, HomeServices of America, RE/MAX and Keller Williams are also named in the suit."
