Murderer getting a sex change on our dime is also getting us to pay its legal bills.
In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf earlier this month ordered the state Department of Correction to provide sex-reassignment surgery to Michelle Kosilek. Wolf found that prison officials had violated Kosilek's Eighth Amendment right to protection against cruel and unusual punishment, and that the surgery is the "only adequate treatment" for Kosilek's gender-identity disorder.
Wolf has now found that Kosilek is also entitled to legal fees.
Everyone should cut out this article and have in next to them when they
are doing their taxes next year.
Kosilek has prevailed on his claim that the defendant has violated his Eighth Amendment rights and is continuing to do so. Therefore, he is eligible to be awarded his reasonable attorney's fees and costs," Wolf wrote in an order entered in court Sunday.Wolf's ruling does not say how much in legal costs Kosilek is eligible for, the case dates back years and the amount is "likely to be large," Wolf wrote.
Kosilek's attorney, Frances Cohen, said she has not yet done a final calculation or submitted a request for fees, but estimates that attorneys' fees will be comparable to the approximately $500,000 sought in the case of another transgender inmate who also sued the Department of Correction for treatment of gender-identity disorder.
I actually hate the judge more than I do the murderer transgenda pathetic
