Woman Gets $900,000 in Damages after Date Gives Her Herpes
By CATHERINE TRAYWICK | June 7, 2012
An Oregon woman's lawsuit proved extremely costly to the man she met on eHarmony.
It may not be the most romantic way to open a first date but, as one Oregon man recently discovered, failing to fully disclose a sexually transmitted disease to a potential lover can cost you. This week a jury awarded a woman $900,000 in damages after she contracted genital herpes from a man she was dating. The couple reportedly met on the dating website eHarmony and, by the fourth date, had sex. The woman, who filed suit under a pseudonym, claimed that her date knew that he was carrying the disease but didn’t tell her until after they had consummated the relationship.
While such lawsuits aren’t exactly common, this isn’t the first time someone has cashed in after being knowingly infected by an STD-carrying lover. In 2009, a California jury awarded nearly $7 million to a 56-year-old woman who unknowingly contracted herpes from a 77-year-old man who neglected to tell her that he had lived with the disease for 25 years. In 2010, another California woman was awarded $2.5 million in damages after contracting the same disease from her cheating husband.
Over the years, several celebrities have found themselves in the hot seat. Robin Williams, Tony Bennett and Frank Vick have all been sued for allegedly infecting their former lovers with herpes. (Williams and Vick both settled out of court, while Bennett countersued.)
Moral of the story: It’s better to have kissed and tell, than to have loved and lost… in court.

My buddy picked this chick up from a bar one night and she asked to stop at a gas station so she could buy smokes. She left her purse wide open in the car and he notices a script bottle. He takes it out to look at it and notices it's Valtrex. He kicked the bitch out right there and left her.
I would of left her at the gas station
I would live with herpes for 900k
Guy probably has 10k in assets and will just file banko.
Wow! This brings up a lot of questions. Should it be law to disclose information about your medical history? As it stands now, it is illegal to even check up on someone to determine if they have an STD. Are we relying on the honor system? The CDC said that 17% of sexually active people have herpes. WTF makes this chick so special?
Should there be a new dating system that requires STD screenings before you are legally allowed to have sex with someone? Don't get me wrong, Knowingly giving someone an STD is some evil shit that might warrant revenge in blood. Yeah, I can honestly say that if someone gave me an STD, and they knew they had an STD and didn't tell me, I might would murder them.
Whorish slut deserves it
Cruising on 250mg Test Cyp/week.
this is interesting, I wonder if I can sue a woman for blue balls
There's only a few things that would ease the mental pain of just having received herpes. $900,000 is one of them.
$7 million ?!?!?!
where do they come up with these numbers?
a friend of mine is knowingly sleeping with a guy who has genital herpes..
i guess she just doesn't care?
William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.
wow. talk about a frivolous lawsuit. what a waste of taxpayers money.
Nvrbdr is created 100% for entertainment purposes and should NOT be taken seriously. Steroid use is illegal without a prescription, always advise with your doctor
Damn! Now that is a story lol
