Sixth Circuit Enforces Disclaimers in Consumer Online Clickwrap Terms of Service

17 02 2009

In Doe v., Inc., the Sixth Circuit considered the appeal of a user of the SexSearch online dating service from dismissal of his breach of contract, fraud and other state law claims (based on Ohio law) against the service for its failure to screen out underage minors. Doe was arrested and charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor for his encounter with a fourteen year old who represented herself on the service as eighteen. As the opinion notes, the charges were later dismissed and the record sealed for reasons undisclosed, but Doe subsequently brought suit claiming that the service was at fault for his relationship with the minor and for the resulting harm caused by his arrest.
