ATLANTA, July 7 (UPI) -- A federal judge has ruled a transgendered woman who was fired by the Georgia Office of Legislative Counsel was the victim of sex discrimination.
U.S. District Judge Richard Story has not yet decided what remedies to grant Vandy Beth Glenn, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. He scheduled another hearing Tuesday.
Glenn was hired as Glenn Morrison in 2005 and told her employer the next year that she planned to undergo a male-to-female sex change. She was dismissed two years later.
Story, in a 50-page decision handed down Friday, said Legislative Counsel Sewell Brumby, the only defendant in the case, had no grounds to fire Glenn. Sewell had argued lawmakers would no longer trust his office if a transgendered person worked there.
