A judge denied a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a group of transgender people against Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson. Six transgender people living in Michigan filed the lawsuit in May with the American Civil Liberties Union. The lawsuit argues the residents’ constitutional rights to privacy are being violated by a state policy that makes it difficult or impossible to change the sex recorded on their driver’s licenses. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds ruled that the privacy issue was valid in this opinion, and declined to dismiss the lawsuit.
