PRESIDING JUDGE TO BE DETERMINED

ORDER MODIFYING JUDGMENT

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the proposed Final Judgment entered May 21, 1973, is hereby modified as set forth in the United States' proposed Modified Final Judgment. Section IV(C) of the Final Judgment is VACATED and replaced with the following:

  1. Adopting or suggesting any rate or amount of commissions or other fees for the sale, lease or management of real estate; provided, however, that surveys and studies may be conducted, published and distributed where not forbidden by Paragraph D of this Section IV of this Final Judgment.

It is FURTHER ORDERED that Section IX is amended to add the following paragraph which states that nothing in this Final Judgment shall be deemed to prohibit:

  1. The publication of advertisements that include the commission rates of individual brokers, provided that the Defendants shall not adopt or suggest rates as proscribed in Section IV(C).

It is FURTHER ORDERED that the preamble paragraphs are VACATED and replaced with the following:

Plaintiff, United States of America, having filed its Complaint herein on June 21, 1972, and Plaintiff and Defendants by their respective attorneys, having consented to the making and entry of the original Final Judgment, without admission by any party in respect to any issue and without this Final Judgment constituting evidence or an admission by any party hereto with respect to any such issue;

NOW, THEREFORE, before any testimony has been taken herein, without trial or adjudication of any issue of fact or law herein, and upon the consent of the parties to the original Final Judgment, and upon the United States' sole motion to modify the Final Judgment, it is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED and DECREED as follows:

It is FURTHER ORDERED that entry of the Modified Final Judgment is in the public interest and the Modified Final Judgment is hereby entered. A complete copy of the Modified Final Judgment is attached hereto.

Dated: _______________________________
United States District Judge
