Stephen R. Bough

U.S. District Court
Judge Bough presides over the class-action antitrust lawsuit known as Sitzer/Burnett. In November, after 11 days of testimony, the jury took just two hours to find NAR, HomeServices of America, and Keller Williams Realty, guilty of collusion to maintain high commission fees (RE/MAX and Anywhere Real Estate settled in advance). The full ramifications of the case are unclear as Bough has not yet filed his final judgment in the Western District of Missouri.
