Craigslistwhich is known for selling everything from toasters to escort services, said today that it had filed a lawsuit in federal court in South Carolina against Attorney General Henry McMaster. The company is seeking a restraining order and declaratory relief, which is a court's judgment on a party's rights without awarding damages or ordering anything to be done.

If they keep their word, this is a victory for law enforcement and for the people of South Carolina. Unfortunately, we had to inform them of possible state criminal violations concerning their past practices to produce a serious response. The lawsuit is the latest action in a brouhaha that has engulfed Craigslist over the past several weeks.

Earlier this week, McMaster said efforts by Craigslist to eliminate racy aren't enough to halt his criminal investigation, a statement that prompted Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster to demand an apology. We have no alternative but to move forward with criminal investigation and potential prosecution. McMaster's complaint came a week after Craigslist bowed to mounting pressure from the law enforcement community and announced that it would remove the Erotic Services category from its classified advertising Web site within seven days.

That move prompted Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who had been vocal in his criticism of Craigslist -- once going so far as to call it an "online brothel" -- to applaud the company's decision to remove the category.

McMaster, I strongly recommend you reconsider and retract your remarks. We're willing to accept our share of criticism, but wrongfully accusing Craigslist of criminal misconduct is simply beyond the pale. We would very much appreciate an apology at your very earliest convenience.
