Lesbian couple hires attorney after being evicted from taxi | VIDEO

PORTLAND, Ore. – A couple has hired a civil-rights attorney after an incident last week in which they claim they were kicked out of a taxi because they’re lesbians.

Kate Neal and Shanako Devoll said a driver from the Broadway Cab company left them stranded on the side of I-84 early Friday morning after they were affectionate in the taxi on the ride home.

"As being a part of the gay community, I first was very angry,” said attorney Nicholas Yanchar. "I just never really had that communication with a driver before with a cab company, so it just kind of set me back and caught me off guard."

Taxis are required by Oregon state law to have working video cameras inside of them.
