D.R. Legal News discusses 5 legal case studies for IAR managing brokers

The United States Supreme Court’s ruling that a professional licensing board was not immune from an anti-trust violation was just one of five legal case studies reviewed in the May edition of the D.R. Legal News.

Lisa Harms Hartzler, Sorling Northrup Attorneys, writes about the five cases for the Illinois Association of REALTORS®. The cases concluded that:

  • an auction company did not have an obligation to supply an Illinois Residential Real Property Disclosure Act form to a trustee for delivery to a successful bidder;
  • a California broker could not list Nebraska properties on the Internet;
  • liability insurance was not applicable to cover a real estate broker in a claim of negligent supervision; and
  • a plaintiff could not challenge rezoning of property without strictly following the Illinois Municipal Code.

D.R. Legal News is an e-newsletter published six times a year with targeted legal, market and management information for Illinois broker managers and designated REALTORS®.
