eHarmony agrees to settle gay discrimination suit

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- The online dating service eHarmony has agreed to settle a California lawsuit that claimed it discriminated against homosexuals.

Under a proposed settlement filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, eHarmony will link its straight and gay Web sites and allow people to use both without paying double fees.

Plaintiff's attorney Todd Schneider says the company also agreed to pay about $500,000 to an estimated 150 Californians to settle the class-action suit, plus around $1.5 million in court and attorney's fees.

The company didn't admit any wrongdoing.

A judge must approve the settlement. A court date is scheduled for Feb. 3.
