A federal appeals court has overturned a ruling ordering Massachusetts prison officials to provide taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery for an inmate convicted of murder.
A transgender inmate who won a court order for taxpayer-funded sex-change surgery will have to wait for that surgery.
A convicted killer who wants a taxpayer-funded sex change may be costing the state even more money.
A Massachusetts inmate who battled with state prison officials for 12 years says a judge’s decision to grant her request for sex-change surgery is “the right thing to do.”
A convicted murderer in Massachusetts who won the right to get a state-funded sex change is also eligible to have legal fees — expected to top $500,000 — paid as well, a federal judge ruled.
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered state prison officials to provide a taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder.
