D.C. District Court Rules in Favor of Transsexual Plaintiff
The Schroer case has been pending for a while now in D.C. district court. There have already been two rulings out of the court denying the defendant Library of Congress's motions to dismiss the claim that Diane Schroer a male-to-female transsexual was discriminated against because of sex when the Library hired her and then immediately fired her due to her transsexual status.
Now, the judge ruled after trial that the discrimination occurred because of sex and permitted the case to proceed to the remedial stage.
