Love v. Johnson (USA)

Emani LoveEmani Love and others filed a federal lawsuit against Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, challenging a state policy they claim makes it “impossible or unduly burdensome” to change the sex recorded on their driver’s licenses. The plaintiffs, represented by lawyers of the American Civil Liberties Union, claim the policy violates constitutional rights to privacy, speech, equal protection, interstate travel and “the right to independence in making important medical decisions.”

Information listed on a person’s driver’s license or ID card in Michigan must match the information on the applicant’s birth certificate, according to the Secretary of State’s office. That means transgender people must have their birth certificates amended before a change can be recorded on their driver’s license.
