Green v. Hooks (USA)

A transgender inmate who was sexually assaulted in prison may pursue claims that prison officials risked his safety by putting him in a cell with a rapist, a federal judge ruled. Darius Green, a male-to-female transgender, was sexually assaulted by a fellow prisoner while serving time at Rogers State Prison in southern Georgia. A federal court denied a motion to dismiss filed by the prison and is allowing the case to proceed.

We support this ruling, as all people have a right to be free from sexual violence while incarcerated.
