First-of-its-Kind Lawsuit Sues for Irreparable Harm Resulting from Surgery!!!!

On May 14th, 2013, Advocates for Informed Choice, The Southern Poverty Law Center, and pro bono counsel for the private law firms of Janet, Jenner & Suggs and Steptoe & Johnson LLP filed a lawsuit against South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS), Greenville Hospital System, Medical University of South Carolina and individual employees for performing an irreversible and medically unnecessary surgery on an infant who was in the state’s care at the time of the surgery.

Intersex people have needed this for a long, long time.  We give big thanks to our allies at Advocates for Informed Choice (AIC), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and the law firms that are suing, for helping bring justice!!!!
