Homestore settles suit

Online real estate site Homestore.com has agreed to settle its lawsuit against Bargain Network. In the suit filed in April in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Homestore accused Bargain Networks of trespassing by combing its Realtor.com site for real estate listings and then illegally displaying those listings on Bargain Networks' Bargain.com site. As part of the settlement, Bargain Networks agreed to permanently cease collecting and displaying such listings. The companies declined to say whether a payment is part of the settlement.
