Glenn v. Brumby (USA)

On December 6, 2011, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit decided Glenn v. Brumby. In Glenn, Vandy Glenn, a male-to-female transsexual, prevailed in her unlawful termination lawsuit against her boss at the Georgia General Assembly’s Office of Legislative Counsel. Glenn claimed that Brumby discriminated against her based on sex in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. There is no dispute that Brumby fired Glenn because of her transition. We support this decision.
