“Keep that for the bedroom or get out of the cab,” Dahbi said.
They decided to leave the cab. There was an argument over the fare. He called them filthy names.
From the New York Post:
At a hearing last month, Dahbi told an unsympathetic administrative-law judge that Spitzer and Thornton were doing more than just G-rated canoodling.
He said they were kissing “heavily” and “touching all over each other” — including “on the chest and the breast.”
But Spitzer testified that she had just had oral surgery and was tentative about even kissing her girlfriend that day. They also had a dog and a pet carrier stuffed into the back seat with them during the ride on Sept. 18, 2011.
The couple, who have now set a June wedding date, flew from California to testify at the administrative trial in the city — which for unknown reasons took more than three years to schedule.
“Most people would just stop and not consume their lives with this anymore. But for us, it affected our entire relationship,” Thornton told The Post.
“We had just started dating, and we wanted to follow through. If everyone backed out of doing what was right, nothing would change.”The question is would Mohammed Dahbi tell a straight couple to get out?
My guess is he would.
Does he have the right to do that?
His cab, his rules -- except now there are no rules, just whose minority is better than the other minority. This ruling holds lesbians trump Muslims.
However, let me make this plain: He cannot deny them taxi service because taxis are a public accommodation, like a streetcar, bus or subway.
