U.S. District Court Judge John Grady has dismissed a lawsuit filed against Craiglist alleging that the company failed to adequately deter prostitutes from posting in its “Erotic Services” (now “Adult Services”) section. Judge Grady concluded that the services offered were for legal activities such as erotic dancing and did not explicitly promote prostitution. Judge Grady also noted that prohibiting the conduct may infringe upon First Amendment rights. The lawsuit was filed by the Cook County Sheriff.
