Judge: Restore inmate’s hormone treatment

Associated Press • Apr 4, 2014 at 10:28 AM

A legal complaint said inmate Antione Lee, who refers to herself as Whitney Lee, experienced a medical setback and depression after prison officials abruptly stopped the treatment in February 2012.

Judge Algenon Marbley ruled Wednesday the state’s actions have harmed and injured Lee and Ohio must immediately resume Lee’s estrogen treatment.

The state argued Lee’s case should have been dismissed because she didn’t exhaust the administrative grievance process first.
