Attorney praises dating website's safeguards

The dating web site announced on Sunday it would check its members against the National Sex Offender Registry. Match.com says it had already been considering the policy, but the lawsuit accelerated their decision.

The plaintiff's attorney says the case is not about the money.

"This is about looking out for other people who are on the site to make it more safe to protect women who are looking for love, who are looking for their ideal match," said attorney Mark Webb.

Match.com says while the checks may help, members should remain vigilant. The company expects to implement the policy in 60 to 90 days.
