      Craigslist wants back into SC lawsuit vs McMaster

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Craigslist wants a federal judge to reconsider dismissing the company's lawsuit against South Carolina's top prosecutor.

      The online classified ads giant says Attorney General Henry McMaster's statements that his office continues to investigate Craigslist represent threats to its employees. A hearing is set for February.

      Craigslist sued McMaster in 2009 after the prosecutor pushed for adult services ads to be pulled from the company's South Carolina sites. Craigslist said McMaster was violating employees' rights by threatening to prosecute the company.

      A judge dismissed the lawsuit in August, but Craigslist wants the judge to reconsider. A McMaster spokesman did not immediately return a message Thursday.
