Grey v. Hasbrouck (USA)

Cook County, Illinois Judge Michael Hyman has approved a consent decree in a class action case to allow transgender individuals to receive new birth certificates without being required to undergo genital surgery.

The Illinois Department of Public Health is now  prohibited from denying new Illinois birth certificates to applicants who seek to change the gender (sic) marker on them solely because they have not had sex reassignment surgery.
