CRAIN'S NEW YORK BUSINESS - Jan 3 - Lori Cheek, a Manhattan architect, had appeared on Shark Tank a few years ago to pitch Cheek'd - an online dating service she invented. After watching the show, former car salesman Alfred Pirri Jr. sued Cheek, accusing her of stealing his idea. Pirri claimed he talked about his business plan with his therapist, who then told Cheek. Lori Cheek said she had no idea who the therapist was. Over the holidays, a federal judge in Manhattan dismissed the lawsuit including other claims against Cheek.
