The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona and a private Phoenix law firm have filed a class action lawsuit against the Arizona Board of Regents, the governing body of Arizona’s three public universities, and the state of Arizona for denying transgender employees gender-confirming healthcare on Wednesday, Jan 23. “No one should be denied medically necessary care because of who they are,” said ACLU of Arizona Legal Director Kathy Brody in an ACLU press release. “Transgender people are part of our community, our families and our workplaces, and they deserve the same benefits Arizona affords everyone else.” The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Russell Toomey, an associate professor in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Arizona, as well as all transgender individuals enrolled in the state health plan. “I filed this lawsuit because I have been unable to access a medically necessary procedure as a result of the state’s discriminatory health plan,” Toomey said in a press release from the ACLU. Toomey has sought to obtain a gender-confirming medical procedure, which has been recommended by his doctors as a standard and accepted procedure in treating gender dysphoria according to Toomey’s lawyers.
