Woman gets $900,000 after man gives her STD

A 49-year-old American woman has been awarded $900,000 by a court after a 69-year-old retiree had sex with her and then confessed to having the sexually transmitted disease (STD) herpes.

According to Daily Mail, a jury heard that in May 2010 the two met for their fourth date where, after an evening over wine and smoking marijuana, the couple had sex.

Later, the man told her he had STD.

The woman said she took anti-viral medication but it caused large chunks of her hair to fall out and made her weight go up by 30 pounds.

She filed a lawsuit under a pseudonym, and said she had asked the man to wear a condom and he agreed. However, she later noticed he was no longer wearing protection.
