ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia legislators asked a federal judge to
dismiss a discrimination lawsuit filed by a former state employee
who claimed she was fired because she was undergoing a sex-change procedure.
Vandy Beth Glenn claimed in the lawsuit that she was fired from
her job as a legislative editor for the General Assembly because
she told her boss she was going to live as a woman full time.
The legislative leaders filed a motion this week saying Glenn's
lawsuit should be tossed because it could lead to a new round of
court scrutiny of public employees.
The filing said "it would make every decision by a government employer a constitutional matter."
