Grey v. Hasbrouck (USA)

Cook County, Illinois Judge Michael Hyman approved a consent decree in 2012 in a class action case to allow transgender individuals to receive new birth certificates without being required to undergo genital surgery. He also awarded attorneys fees and costs to the plaintiffs. The State Registrar of Vital Records challenged the award of attorneys fees and costs, and the Illinois appellate court held that the award was proper because the Registrar was not following the law when he declined to give transgender people new birth certificates.
