After a day back at work under the Gold Dome, Vandy Beth Glenn sits down to talk. She pulls her boots off her feet and tucks her legs under her, maneuvering her body into a comfortable position.
“It’s been hard, really hard,” she said of the past four years in her legal fight to get her job back as a legislative editor at the Georgial General Assembly.
Fired in 2007 by then-Legislative Counsel Sewell Brumby for deciding to transition genders on the job, Glenn won her lawsuit against Brumby and the state this month when a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s ruling that Brumby, who retired in August, wrongly fired her. Glenn was represented by Lambda Legal.
