Wis. Woman Sues Man For Her Herpes, Seeks $350,000

View Comments

ELKHORN, Wis. (AP) — A Delavan woman has filed a lawsuit accusing an Edgerton man of infecting her with genital herpes.

A Janesville Gazette report says the 33-year-old woman is seeking $350,000. She claims the 35-year-old man knowingly exposed her to a sexually transmitted disease.

The Gazette didn’t name either person.

The lawsuit says the man and woman were each married to other people when they began flirting in 2009. The woman says the two spent a day together in January 2010, culminating in sexual activity in the man’s pickup truck.

The man has denied giving her herpes and has told her to check with her other partners. She says her only partners were the man and her husband.

The woman says her husband has been reluctant to have sex since her diagnosis.
