A federal judge in Chicago dismissed the suit, which accused the free-classifieds network of running discriminatory housing ads. According to the Associated Press, Judge Amy St. Eve ruled that Craigslist was protected by the Communications Decency Act, which allows users to post unedited messages and communicate freely in forums. The lawyers group that filed the suit claimed the court's decision struck a blow against fair housing practices.
