Supreme Court Rejects Floor Plan Case; Appraisers Vulnerable

Originally published on June 27, 2022 by the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court on June 27 rejected a case involving the use of floor plans in marketing materials. Multiple real estate firms petitioned the court to review the case, contending the Eighth Circuit incorrectly ruled that using floor plans in marketing materials constituted a copyright violation. In April, the Appraisal Institute joined an Amicus Brief filed with the Supreme Court over concerns that appraisers could be sued for making floor plans of a home. (see p. 9, COLUMBIA HOUSE item).
