Lawsuit on Transgender Policy at Midland Gym Can Move Forward

The Michigan Appeals Court says a lawsuit involving Planet Fitness in Midland and transgender rights can go forward.

A woman sued the gym after her membership was terminated in 2015.

She says it was canceled because she complained about a transgender woman in the women’s locker room.

Planet Fitness said it allows people to use the locker room that matches their identity.

However, it’s an unwritten policy.

The appeals court ruled the woman’s rights were violated when she wasn’t told about the policy.
