Michael McConaughey has worked as a Port Authority officer since 2013 and claimed he filed a series of complaints with his supervisors along with the agency’s human resources over the alleged discrimination.
The complaints had “no obvious impact,” the officer said, and he filed a lawsuit against the agency Sunday in Manhattan, according to court records.
“Cases like this are important for sending the message that anti-trans discrimination is just as unlawful and should be taken just as seriously as any other form of harassment or discrimination,” said Daniel Kirschbaum, McConaughey’s lawyer.
