Today, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of New Mexico and cooperating attorney Mark Chaiken of Virtue & Najjar, PC filed a lawsuit in the First Judicial District Court on behalf of Diane Roberts, a transgender woman who was discriminated against, harassed, and ultimately fired by ABF Freight Inc. after coming out as transgender. The lawsuit comes after the New Mexico Human Rights Bureau issued a determination of probable cause in July finding that Ms. Roberts was subjected to discrimination and pervasive harassment on account of her sex, gender identity, disability, and serious medical condition.
