It was not immediately clear when the lawsuit was being filed.
San Francisco-based Craigslist did not immediately return e-mail and telephone requests for comment. Federal law offers broad immunity to service providers for content posted by their users, as long as they respond to specific complaints.
Federal prosecutors accused a New York man in November on charges of being a violent pimp who forced young girls and women into prostitution. Prosecutors allege he advertised the services of women between the ages of 15 and 20 on Craigslist. And in January, two Wisconsin women were charged with misdemeanor prostitution on allegations of offering sex for money in Craigslist .
Craigslist had reached an agreement in November with attorneys general in Connecticut, Illinois and several other states that had called for the company to crack down on prostitution. Craigslist also agreed to provide that information to law enforcement if subpoenaed.
At the time, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who brokered the agreement, said Craigslist cooperated fully and there never was a need to threaten the company with legal action.
