The lawyers are probably crying, they didn't want craigslist to shut it down upon the first written request. They had to ask before suing, courts still want to see some effort to resolve disputes, but now who are they going to earn money from?
The poor lawyers!
Ohh, good on you craigslist, if just one young woman avoids exploitation as a result it's a good move.
It's a pandemic, not a public nuisance.
Correction, the people who pay for the actual "services" are to blame. no money = no exploitation.
Perhaps if the lawyers went after the buyers things would change more quickly. It's illegal, the penalty should be made brutal.
Prostitution is also illegal and it takes at least 2 parties so... why are there very few johns busted in comparison?
