Lawsuits

Numerous lawsuits have been filed across the country, including two in Texas, where local associations of REALTORS® and real estate brokerages have been named as co-defendants. We are limited in what we can say, but we assure you that we will share as much information as we can along the way. HAR strives to be as transparent as possible.
