Sex Reassignment in Prison

Will Bradley Chelsea Manning be entitled to sex reassignment treatment at taxpayer expense?

Last year, a federal district court in Massachusetts held that the Eighth Amendment required that state to provide not only hormone treatment but also surgery.  See   Kosilek v. Spencer, 889 F.Supp.2d 190.  The appeal was argued in the First Circuit on April 2 and is presently pending, No. 12-2194.

Stay tuned.
