LAS VEGAS (AP) — An online dating service says a Las Vegas woman has no legal basis for her lawsuit seeking $10 million after she was matched up with a man who hid in her garage and brutally attacked her.

Mary Kay Beckman filed suit in U.S. District Court on Friday accusing Match.com of failing to disclose the dangers of online dating.

She said she'd known Wade Ridley only eight days when he stabbed her 10 times, nearly killing her in September 2010. Ridley later was charged with murdering a woman in Phoenix. He died in prison last year.

Match.com said in a statement Monday that what happened to Beckman was horrible but the lawsuit is "absurd." It said Beckman was a victim of a "sick, twisted" man with no known criminal record.
