Two Wisconsin state employees who are transgender received $780,000 in damages from a Wisconsin jury after the two were rejected for healthcare coverage under the state health insurance plan.

A federal court determined in September that refusing healthcare coverage to Shannon Andrews and Alina Boyden for gender-affirming medical services violated federal nondiscrimination laws, after a lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Wisconsin, and volunteer lawyers.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I want to thank the judge in the case and the jury for awarding a fair verdict. It was wonderful to see a process where eight ordinary Wisconsinites were able to listen to our story, see that we were harmed, and make the decision that they did,” Boyden said in a statement. “No one should have to tell their story to a room full of strangers to justify their medical expenses, but I am thankful that I had the opportunity to share my story. I hope this sends a powerful message to fellow transgender people in Wisconsin that our health matters.”
