Alaska sued in transgender driver’s license case



Published: Mon, July 18, 2011 @ 10:45 p.m.

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the state of Alaska on behalf of a transgender woman, alleging that it denied her a driver’s license listing her gender as female unless she provided proof that she’d undergone a sex change operation.

The lawsuit, filed in state court in Anchorage Monday, states that denying the woman a license that accurately reflects her gender identity because she hasn’t undergone surgery is unconstitutional.

According to the lawsuit, the woman, a pilot identified only as K.L., has lived her life as a woman for nearly two years. It states that she officially changed her name, receives hormone therapy, and is identified as female on her passport and other documents.

A message was left late Monday afternoon with the Department of Law’s civil division.
