The popular online dating service e Harmony was sued on Thursday for refusing to offer its services to gays, lesbians and bisexuals.
e Harmony was founded in 2000 by evangelical Christian Dr.
Neil Clark Warren and had strong early ties with the influential religious conservative group Focus on the Family.
There wasn’t even a link to Compatible Partners at e Harmony.
According to a Mashable article about the 2010 lawsuit: A gay man from New Jersey named Eric Mc Kinley filed suit against e Harmony in 2008 for not offering matchmaking for gays and lesbians.
e Harmony settled by agreeing to launch a service for gay and lesbian customers called Compatible Partners.
Lawyers bringing the action said they believed it was the first lawsuit of its kind against e Harmony, which has long rankled the gay community with its failure to offer a “men seeking men” or “women seeking women” option.
They were seeking to make it a class action lawsuit on behalf of gays and lesbians excluded from the dating service.
