Bob Egelko reports:
The Department of Motor Vehicles employee who handled a transgender woman’s application to register her sex change was suspended shortly after the woman reported that he had sent her a letter condemning her to hell, the state agency said Friday.
Spokesman Michael Marando said the employee was placed on administrative leave with pay in October while the DMV investigates his conduct.
The suspension didn’t go far enough for Christopher Dolan, the attorney who filed a damage claim with the state this week on behalf of Amber Yust. Dolan said the employee’s actions not only violated Yust’s privacy and civil rights but could also be grounds for criminal prosecution.
