Rice v. Patel (USA)

A California court has dismissed a prisoner’s lawsuit that he was given hormones associated with transition without his consent. In Rice v. Patel, Erick Rice claimed he was coerced into a diagnosis of “transgender” and was prescribed hormones against his wishes. He claimed to be damaged because he now has breasts and “looks like a female.”

Rice Docket.

Rice Dismissal.

  1. Why shouldn’t he sue? He never took females hormones before prison, and he is bipolar / schizoaffective. Why one earth did they give this mentally ill man female hormones? He says he hates having breasts. I think he should be awarded something for their stupidity.
