Doe v. Arizona (USA)

Arizona District Court Judge David G Campbell has denied, in part, Arizona attorneys’ motion to dismiss in Doe v. Arizona.  The Plaintiff, a woman who identifies as a transgender male known for the purposes of this lawsuit as John Doe, is a corrections officer employed by the state. Doe alleges the state of Arizona “violated his rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by discriminating against him on the basis of his gender identity and retaliating against him based on his filing of a charge of discrimination…” and is seeking declaratory and injunctive relief and an unspecified monetary amount in damages.  The Court denied the Defendant’s motion to dismiss Doe’s claims of gender discrimination, but granted the motion to dismiss claims of retaliation.
