Lady Wants Match.com To Screen The Weirdos

A California woman is suing a popular Internet dating site, saying she was sexually assaulted by a man she met on Match.com.

The entertainment executive, unidentified Jane Doe, hired Attorney Mark L. Webb to file her lawsuit with the Los Angeles Superior Court.

The suit demands that Match.com screen its members for sexual predators. The woman is asking for a temporary injunction barring the site from signing up more members until his client's demands are met.

On their second date, when they met at the Urth Cafe in West Hollywood. After a second date, the attorney says the man followed her home and attacked her. The man had been convicted 6 different times for sexual battery.

  1. Now I really hate what happened to her, but I think that its been said a thousand times any time you do anything on the internet check the person out. Whether its a dating site or Craigslist you have to take the basic precautions.

    Then it really gets into a whole other gray area. Just because someone fills out and on line form doesn't mean they will use their real information if their intent is to do someone else harm. Especially if they know the site will be doing a background check of some kind.
