Doe v. Arizona (USA)

A Women who identifies as a Man and who works as a prison guard is suing the Arizona Department of Corrections saying he has been the victim of discrimination. The lawsuit filed by attorney Stephen Montoya says the guard, who is not named, “has been subjected to severe and pervasive discriminatory harassment by his co-workers and supervisors based on his status as a transgender male.’’ Montoya wants a federal judge to order the harassment to stop and for the state to provide him with unspecified monetary damages. Montoya said his client had to “take an otherwise unwanted transfer and suffer lost income.” The lawsuit does not spell out where the guard was working and Wilder said he cannot provide details.
