Ticket Scalpers and Gold Diggers Everywhere Breathe a Sigh of Relief

Trading World Series tickets for sex isn't prostitution, as a matter of law.  Although the article makes the proposed swap sound pretty innocuous, the actual transaction, as alleged, was a good deal more salacious than a simple generic offer.  The court's decision is here.

The article is from the WSJ, where they worry about this stuff (not too surprising, given the frequency with which NYC baseball teams make it to the Series; this type of transaction is more of a theoretical issue here in Chicago).
