A state administrative law judge has ruled in favor of a transgender Iowa City man who thinks he is a woman who filed a civil rights complaint after a sheriff’s deputy ordered him to leave a women’s restroom at the Johnson County Courthouse. Jodie Jones, 56, says he attended a court hearing in November 2011 while dressed in “female clothing,” according to a ruling and report issued Tuesday by the Iowa Civil Rights Commission. Jones told the commission that Deputy Susan Henderson followed him inside the restroom and yelled that Jones needed to immediately leave. Jones complied but said he told the deputy he had the legal right to use the restroom of his choice and alleged that Henderson replied that he would not let him use the restroom “regardless of what the law is.”
