Married Man Sues For a Date

Last month we wrote about a lady who was upset with, an online matchmaking service. L.D. spent over an hour filling out the in-depth personality profile, only to be told at the end that e-harmony doesn’t let people who are legally separated to use its service.

To vent her outrage, reader L.D. contacted customer service. John Claassen experienced the same discrimination and he’s fighting back Cali-style; suing for $12,000.

“If I had my druthers, I’d be divorced by now. I’m emotionally in a different state than I am legally,” the 36-year-old Emeryville lawyer said.

Imagine all the dates he can buy if he wins. Maybe we should hook him up with L.D.
