NBC4 NEWS -- Sept 20-- Soheil Davood claims his paid subscription to JDate.com, billed as "the world's largest Jewish singles community," guaranteed that he would find "high-quality, successful Jewish personals without wasting precious time." The subscriber, who is a co-defendant in the case, made sexual remarks during the chat, claimed to work for the nation's largest lingerie manufacturer, and told Davood that "she might have found her man in the plaintiff," the suit states. When the plaintiff called, he "received a taunting automated message telling him that he was rejected." Davood is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for "serious psychological injury."

Mark Brooks: It's unfortunate this user was left at the alter. He can't possibly have any legal standing. Online dating sites are a vehicle for search and communication. We can vet for bogus profiles and inappropriate pictures, but not much more. TRUE.com has, however, taken the vetting process one step further by performing background checks to check if users are felons or are married.
