The Supreme Court heard oral argument in R.G. and G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. EEOC, a case on whether federal civil rights law protects against transgender employment discrimination. Aimee Stephens, formerly Anthony Stevens, served as the funeral director for R.G. and G.R. Harris Funeral Homes. Throughout her time at the company, Stevens presented as a man. According to Stephens, after she told the company that she would be transitioning to a woman, he was terminated. Stephens filed a complaint with the EEOC alleging termination based on sex discrimination. After an EEOC investigation, the agency filed suit against the funeral home. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled in favor of Stephens. close
