LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles judge wants the online dating site Match.com to show proof that it is screening members to see if any are sexual predators.

Superior Court Judge Carl West’s order on Friday comes on the heels of a criminal case in which a 67-year-old man pleaded no contest to sexually assaulting a woman he met on the site. The woman sued Match.com after finding out that her attacker had been convicted of sexual battery. She said it should screen its members.

West says that if an attorney for Match.com can show that such a procedure is being used, the lawsuit will likely be settled.

The site’s lawyer, Joseph Laska, said he will bring proof to the court on Tuesday that the screening system is in place.

    Whoever is desperate for a hot night should be responsible for whatever they experience. There maybe a lot of peoplr, men or women, to take a chance in exchange for a few minutes of pleasure. It could happens in a bar, cantina, or restaurant. After all, it only takes a couple of drinks to convince or be convinced to take the next step.This lady knew what she wanted and she got it. She just wanted a few extra bucks to pay for her next adventure if the guy could not or he did not want to pay for.
