Online dating service eHarmony is under renewed pressure to allow gays and lesbians to use its service after a discrimination lawsuit was filed against the company in California this week. Linda Carlson, a lesbian, tried to sign up for the service, but couldn’t because there wasn’t a “woman seeking woman” option. She contacted eHarmony, which apparently dismissed her complaint. So she filed a lawsuit against eHarmony claiming the company is breaking California’s law against sexual orientation discrimination.
Here’s the Fox News story about the eHarmony lawsuit…
