Michigan Supreme Court to hear transgender case involving Planet Fitness

By  | 

MIDLAND COUNTY (WJRT) - (07/12/17) - A Midland County woman who sued a local gym for its transgender-friendly locker policy is now taking her case to Michigan's highest court.

Yvette Cormier's lawsuit is based on her seeing a transgender person in the locker room at the Planet Fitness in Midland in February of 2015.

Carlotta Sklodowska later came forward, saying she was the transgender woman in question.

Planet Fitness eventually canceled Cormier's membership.

They pride themselves on being a "judgement free zone".

Cormier filed suit, alleging breach of contract.

That suit was dismissed in January of last year.

After an appeals court again ruled against Cormier, she filed to the Michigan Supreme Court Wednesday.
