Yvette Cormier is a woman who objected to the presence of a man in the women’s locker room at a Planet Fitness gym in Michigan and who filed a lawsuit against the gym following the cancelation of her membership. On Wednesday, July 12 Cormier’s attorney, David Kallman, filed for leave to appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court.
Cormier’s complaint states, “The lower courts erroneously held that Defendants did not invited Mrs. Cormier’s right to privacy by allowing a man to be present in and use the women’s locker room and showers. Mrs. Cormier respectfully requests that this Honorable Court reverse the holdings of the lower courts and remand this case for trial.”
We support Ms. Cormier’s lawsuit, and the right of all women to object to the presence of men in women’s spaces.
