re: " My, and any other owner occupied multi-family dwellings, responsibility under the law is exactly as I mentioned.
I can advertise, mention, or discriminate against anyone I want to for any reason I want to without being in violation of the law.
Your mentioning of discrimination only applies to non-owner occupied dwellings, and "apartment buildings" which are generally anything with 4 or more apartments in it."
again, I suggest you check the law regarding *advertising* and make sure you understand what you can and cannot *advertise* (whether or not you can discriminate is not all that relevant -- you need to make sure you are not advertising anything you are not legally allowed to advertise...) D.

re: "As a landlord for an owner occupied 2 family home, I can tell you that many many many rules and regulations for "Fair Housing" don't apply to me, and I can deny a person to live in the other half of my house for any reason I want. Skin Color, hair color, kids, pets, smokers, what car they drive, how much money they make, religion, sexual preference or any number of other things if I want to."
what you can legally do and what you can legally advertise are different things -- I suggest you make sure you understand what is your responsibility under the law as far as *advertising* if you are going to advertise on craigslist (or elsewhere): the prior court ruling only absolves *craigslist* of liability, NOT the craigslist ad posters/landlords
P.S. let's hope the legal system wakes up D.
