CoStar Rival Files Antitrust Suit to End "Decades-Long Monopoly"
By Konrad Putzier, The Real Deal

Real estate data company Xceligent filed an antitrust lawsuit against CoStar, alleging that the $9 billion behemoth is precluding its users from sharing their own data and stifling competition.

"We gladly take up this fight and we will not rest until the industry has clear safeguards against an obvious abuse of power by CoStar," Xceligent's CEO Doug Curry said in a statement. The company seeks monetary damages and is "asking the federal government to bring an end to CoStar's decades-long monopoly in the CRE information industry."
