roommates.com: no 230 safe harbor for discriminatory housing ads

Just saw that the 9th Circuit has issued its en banc opinion finding that Roommates.com is not eligible for Section 230 immunity for discriminatory postings. Haven’t read it yet.

Decision at up at the 9th Circuit website. Opinion by Kozinski, who usually gets this stuff so maybe it’s not too bad.

notes:
* Kozinski favorably cites the 7th Circuit decision against craigslist. interesting, because craigslist won that one (that opinion came out just a couple of weeks ago)
