Compass will appeal a New York judge’s decision last month to let Realogy proceed with a lawsuit that alleges its rival engaged in “predatory” poaching and illicit business practices. Judge Barry Ostrager had sustained Realogy’s case June 5 by denying Compass’ motion to dismiss it and compel arbitration. According to a July 9 notice of appeal, Compass is now taking the matter to the Appellate Division.
- Dig Deeper: In addition to its motion to dismiss, Compass asked the court to compel arbitration.. In his June 5 ruling, Judge Ostrager denied both requests but instructed Realogy to re-file its complaint to clarify what allegations related to Corcoran ought to be litigated versus arbitrated. (TRD)
