Oregon settles discrimination case with transgender man

The state of Oregon will provide a man $36,000 after he sued the state and its Public Employees' Benefits Board when they denied him healthcare coverage. A doctor recommended a hysterectomy for the man, who was then undergoing operations aimed at changing his sex from female to male. Because the state does cover hysterectomies for women, the plaintiff argued that officials discriminated against him based on his gender. The state avoided what would have likely been a costly and lengthy civil dispute by settling the claim with the plaintiff.
