Online dating sites sued for using dead soldier's photo

PlentyofFish.com and True.com are being sued for allegedly using a fallen soldier's photo in their ads for "Military Man Searching for Love."

The parents of Army Lt. Peter Burks have sued both dating sites. They say their son's photo was used in ads without their permission.

"The implication is that, if you click here, this is one of our members. This is somebody you'll meet -- and people like him -- when this fallen hero has been dead three or four years," attorney Rogge Dunn, of Clouse Dunn LLP in Dallas, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Burks' parents, told NBC.

Dunn sent a cease-and-desist letter to PlentyofFish.com, based in Vancouver. The company has since agreed to remove the ad. Star Local News reports there has been no response to a similar letter from True.com based in Dallas.
