Richard Blumenthal, Lead Threatener Of Craigslist, Doesn't Even Have Jurisdiction Over Prostitution
from the totally-bogus dept
Well, according to Jacob Sollum, over at Reason, perhaps the reason is that prostitution cases aren't even within Blumenthal's mandate and jurisdiction:
As Connecticut's Division of Criminal Justice explains on its website, the state's attorney general "has no jurisdiction whatsoever over criminal matters and no authority to prosecute criminal violations of the law."So, here we have an attorney general, who you would think knows both the law and his own jurisdiction, going to the press and grandstanding, rather than filing an actual lawsuit because (a) he can't actually file the lawsuit and (b) even if he could, he'd lose.
