Norsworthy v. Beard (USA)


The same federal judge that ruled that a convicted murderer has a right to sex reassignment surgery has now ruled that the state of California has no right to a stay of the requirement to give him sex reassignment surgery while the state appeals the ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Judge Jon Tigar ruled that the state must take all of the actions reasonably necessary to provide Jeffrey Norsworthy sex reassignment surgery as promptly as possible.
