Chicago • Two Chicago men sued a taxi company this week, alleging a driver tried to kick them out of his cab because they shared a short kiss.
Matthew McCrea and Steven White filed the lawsuit against Sun Taxi. They claim the driver violated the Illinois Human Rights Act and are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.
The lawsuit contends McCrea gave White, his boyfriend, a one-second-long kiss during a ride from the airport, the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1C2r0BR ) reported. The men said the driver then pulled over on the expressway and ordered them out. When they refused, the driver merged back onto the expressway, "driving recklessly, swerving into traffic," according to the lawsuit.
