Stevens v. Ill. Dep’t of Corr. (USA)

Jack Stevens sued his employer, the Illinois Department of Corrections (“IDOC”), for discrimination and retaliation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”). Stevens, a Correctional Officer, alleges that he was fired because of a depressive episode he suffered in February 2005. A court recently allowed his lawsuit to proceed. Part of Steven’s claim includes allegations of sexual harassment by his transgender supervisor, Joni Harris.
