Lawsuit Launches Same-Sex Dating Web Site

The online dating service eHarmony has launched a separate site for gays and lesbians as part of a settlement in a New Jersey civil rights case filed against it.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that eHarmony’s Compatible Partners site went live in April for those seeking same-sex relationships.

The launch is part of a settlement of a 2005 New Jersey discrimination complaint filed against eHarmony for catering solely to people looking for partners of the opposite sex. A similar complaint was filed against the company in California in 2007.
