Court reviews Ga. firing of transgender woman

Legal Expert News Posted on

A federal appeals court is considering whether a former Georgia state legislative aide who was fired amid her sex change was the target of sexual discrimination.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday heard the case of Vandy Beth Glenn, who said in a 2008 lawsuit that legislative counsel Sewell Brumby fired her after she told him she would come to work dressed as a woman as she transitioned from man to woman.

Glenn, formerly known as Glenn Morrison, said she was told she was fired because her gender transition would be seen as "immoral" by Georgia lawmakers.

State attorneys contend they broke no law and said federal laws that guarantee the rights of some minorities don't extend to transgender employees.
