"House panel votes to let prostitutes sue pimps"

Sun-Times (Ben Fischer):
"Homer X," a former pimp who got rich by selling hookers on Chicago's North Side for nearly 25 years, now believes prostitutes need help from the General Assembly.

Using a fake name to protect his identity, Homer X, 46, spoke to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday in support of a measure that would allow prostitutes to sue their pimps. A former Chicago prostitute, Olivia Howard, also testified in favor of the bill.
Comments?

Is this a step toward legalization?

Will the prostitutes sue for the bling-bling or the girls remaining in the stable?

Will pols be able to sue lobbyists that got them hooked on junkets are campaign contributions?

This might be a good idea and a way to establish some useful legal protection for prostitutes.
