Working in a Post Burnett Trial Verdict:  Resources and Guidance for REALTORS®

Posted on: November 29th, 2023

An eight-person jury in Kansas City, Missouri recently returned a verdict against NAR and other corporate defendants in the case of Burnett v. NAR et al.

NAR stands by the fact that its guidance for local MLS broker marketplaces ensures consumers get comprehensive, equitable, transparent and reliable home information and that brokerages of any size, service or pricing model get a fair shot at competing. NAR will continue to focus on our mission to advocate for homeownership and always put consumer interests first.

This matter is not close to final, as NAR will appeal the jury’s verdict. It will likely be several years before this case is finally resolved.

As the case continues to evolve and more lawsuits are filed, we have compiled a list of resources below for you to use in working with your clients.
