Navaeh Love v. Katoshia Young

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida filed a lawsuit on behalf of Nevaeh Love, a transgender woman who was ejected from a place of public accommodation because she is transgender.

The Florida Commission on Human Relations has already determined that reasonable cause exists to believe that unlawful discrimination in violation of the Florida Civil Rights Act occurred. That finding allowed Ms. Love to file this lawsuit, which seeks to establish that Florida’s prohibition on sex discrimination in public accommodations protects transgender Floridians.
