Golden Circle Real Estate Group LLC, a relative new kid in the Greater Des Moines real estate market doing business as Keller Williams Greater Des Moines, has dropped a lawsuit in which it claimed that Iowa Realty Co. Inc. violated real estate contracts and interfered with trade by failing to inform customers that it will not share commissions with Keller Williams. Not long after the suit was filed in June 2012 in Polk County District Court, a judge dismissed some claims and described others as "tenuous." Iowa Realty had filed for summary judgment and for a ruling on whether its competitor should be sanctioned for filing a frivolous lawsuit. "As a result of the disruption and considerable expense Iowa Realty was unnecessarily forced to incur, Iowa Realty is currently evaluating its legal options and next steps," the company said in a news release. Click here, for a related article in the Business Record.
