Federal Court Issues Statewide Injunction Against Wisconsin’s Categorical Medicaid Exclusion on Transgender Healthcare

Federal Court Issues Statewide Injunction Against Wisconsin’s Categorical Medicaid Exclusion on Transgender Healthcare

On April 23, 2019, a federal court issued a preliminary injunction invalidating Wisconsin’s categorical exclusion on coverage for medically-necessary gender-confirming treatments for transgender Medicaid beneficiaries. The injunction bars enforcement of the discriminatory exclusion, which has been in effect since 1997, to deny coverage for treatments for gender dysphoria. The court also certified the case as a class action on behalf of all transgender Wisconsin Medicaid beneficiaries seeking treatments for gender dysphoria. In April 2018, Relman, Dane & Colfax and its co-counsel filed the lawsuit, Flack v. Wisconsin Department of Health Services, on behalf of Cody Flack of Green Bay and Sara Ann Makenzie of Baraboo, who had been denied medically necessary gender-confirming surgeries under the blanket exclusion. In July 2018—finding that they were likely...

BREAKING: High Court Accepts Cases Over Whether Title VII Covers LGBT Bias

BREAKING: High Court Accepts Cases Over Whether Title VII Covers LGBT Bias
By Vin Gurrieri
Law360 (April 22, 2019, 9:43 AM EDT) -- The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a trio of closely watched cases that hinge on whether gay and transgender workers are protected from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
The high court granted petitions for certiorari in three cases — Altitude Express v. Zarda, Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. EEOC — giving the justices a chance to settle hotly-debated questions about the scope of the cornerstone federal anti-bias statute.
The three cases each pose similar questions about the scope of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Zarda and Bostock ask the justices to decide whether the law’s existing ban on sex discrimination protects workers from bias based on their sexual orientation, and Harris Funeral Homes asks whether workers are protected from gender identity...

CloudHQ for Lawyers

This post is for my lawyer friends in private practice.

I love my work. I love cool tech. I hate billing. It's one of the most difficult administrative tasks we have is time-based billing. Perhaps long ago, before multi-tasking was invented, and you could only do one thing at a time, perhaps time-based billing made sense. Now it's nearly impossible to keep track of everything I'm doing in one day, especially on email. I spend hours on email, but because each one is only 5 minutes or so, it takes more time to track than it's worth. I've found some cool tech that allows me to do my work and deal with a good chunk of my billing almost automatically.

CloudHQ offers a time tracker for Gmail. It automatically provides a spreadsheet of the time spent on each email, with columns for the sender, the recipient and the subject line. After sorting the spreadsheet by client and date, it's easy for my assistant to input into my billing program. While each email may be short in time,...

DOD Can Implement 'Transgender Ban' After DC Circ. Ruling - Law360

DOD Can Implement 'Transgender Ban' After DC Circ. Ruling

By Daniel Wilson

Law360 (March 27, 2019, 4:17 PM EDT) ­­ The D.C. Circuit on Tuesday issued a formal mandate for its January judgment dissolving an injunction against a Trump administration policy heavily restricting military service by transgender people, clearing the way for the contentious policy to go into effect in April. A three-­judge panel ordered the clerk of the court to issue the mandate in response to an emergency motion for clarification filed by the government on March 20, after a district court ruled its injunction against the disputed transgender policy would remain in effect until that mandate was issued.

The panel did not specify why it had chosen to issue the mandate now, having previously said it would wait until after a pending deadline for requesting rehearing, but noted that it came after reading the government's motion and a reply from challengers to the policy. The government said...
