US fertility doc in web Lothario scandal

Married doc wooed, then got sued

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

A Manhattan "reproductive endocrinologist" is being sued by two irate net lonely hearts who were duped by the online Lothario into believing he was single, Reuters reports.

The women's lawsuits - filed in Manhattan Supreme Court - claim Dr. Khaled Zeitoun, 46, used mind games "to entice them into sexual relationships with tales of past lives", specifically, that he claimed to have been married to his victims in a previous life.

Tiffany Wang says she met Zeitoun in 2001 through a website where he omitted to mention he was married with three kids. He subsequently proposed in May 2002, but only "to see the look of joy on her face", apparently.

Jing Huang encountered the rogue fertility specialist in October 2003 through a web dating agency. He told her too that he was single, but she rumbled him in July 2004 and ended the relationship.

This being the US, the two women have decided not to simply go and kick the bloke in the wedding tackle, but rather have filed suit claiming "infliction of severe emotional distress outside the boundaries of human decency and social norms". The amount of damages sought is unspecified. ®
