Plentyof Fish Media did not say how long the ads — including one with Peter Burks' photo that said "Soldiers Want You!" — ran or how his photo was obtained, said Rogge Dunn, the attorney who filed the suit.Alan Burks said the photo was taken days before his 26-year-old son was killed in Baghdad in late 2007 and is on the website of the family's Unsung Hero Fund, which provides supplies to troops in war zones as a tribute to Peter Burks.In December, a friend recognized Peter Burks in an ad on Plentyof Fish.com, clicked on it and was directed to True.com, Alan Burks said.Vancouver, British Columbia-based Plentyof Fish Media spokesman Paul Bloudoff said the company didn't advertise online in the U. Even so, the ad has been blocked from the company's network, he said."We dealt with this matter a month ago," Bloudoff said in an email."In our opinion, this case should not have been filed."President Ruben Buell said Monday that he hasn't seen the lawsuit but "will be researching this diligently." He said the Dallas-based company, whose official business name is True Beginnings LLC, buys ads that run on other dating websites but does not know what happened in this situation."I certainly feel for his family," Buell said Monday.FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The picture of a handsome, uniformed soldier accompanying online ads that proclaim "Military Man Searching for Love" is an Army lieutenant who was killed in Iraq in 2007, according to a lawsuit filed by his parents Monday against two dating websites. Peter Burks have sued Plentyof and True.com, alleging the companies used their son's photo in ads without their permission, benefitted financially and misled the public.The suit filed Monday in state district court in Dallas seeks a jury trial for compensatory and punitive damages.
Both were inspired by the same group of Baltimore street desperadoes that Simon knew from his crime reporting days, and Hollie's name references two of those figures, Ferdinand Harvin and Anthony Hollie.He said his son was engaged at the time of his death, so the idea that he was trying to meet women online as the ad portrays "couldn't be more wrong.""I felt horrified, disgusted.It upset me," Alan Burks, who lives in Dallas, told The Associated Press on Monday. He said hundreds of thousands of third parties advertise via his company's site every month, and that it cannot control nor know about the content of those ads.In addition to emotional suffering, his parents have also suffered financial damages because, since his death, they have legal control over his image and never authorized any photos to be used to endorse these sites, Dunn said.
Alan Burks said he plans to donate any money awarded in the suit to military charities."For me, this is making sure that the honor and legacy of Peter is protected," he said.
On Thursday, however, he appeared to have been busted himself, in a turn of events that surprised narcotics and police officials.
