Court reviews Ga. firing of transgender woman
Federal appeals court to consider case of transgender woman fired as Georgia legislative aide
By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) ' A federal appeals court is considering the case of a former Georgia state legislative aide who said she was fired because of her sex change.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was set on Thursday to review the case of Vandy Beth Glenn, who said in a 2008 lawsuit that legislative counsel Sewell Brumby fired her after she told him she would come to work dressed as a woman as she transitioned from being a man.

Glenn, formerly known as Glenn Morrison, said she was told she was fired because her gender transition would be seen as "immoral" by Georgia lawmakers.

State attorneys contend they broke no law. They say federal laws that guarantee the rights of some minorities don't extend to transgender individuals.
