On August 22, 2016, a 37-year-old transgender woman incarcerated in the Potosi Correctional Center filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. The plaintiff sued the Missouri Department of Corrections (MDOC) and Corizon LLC, the contracted medical provider for MDOC, under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Represented by Lambda Legal, she sought injunctive and declaratory relief, claiming violations of the Eighth Amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause. Judge Noelle Collins was assigned to this case.

The plaintiff alleged that the defendants failed to provide medical care despite the plaintiff’s serious medical needs. The plaintiff was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and deemed by her doctors to be in need of medical services. The defendants were aware of the plaintiff’s condition but denied medical care. The defendants, in defense, cited a policy called “freeze-frame.” This policy denied gender dysphoria treatment unless the individual had received gender dysphoria medical care prior to being incarcerated in MDOC.

On April 4, 2017, the plaintiff filed a motion for a preliminary injunction asking for medical care necessary for gender dysphoria. This motion sought hormone therapy, access to permanent body hair removal, and access to gender affirming canteen items. In addition, the plaintiff asked that the court declare that the defendants’ freeze-frame policy to be unconstitutional under the Eighth Amendment as cruel and unusual punishment.

On February 9, 2018, the court granted in part and denied in part the plaintiff’s preliminary injunction request. The court granted the plaintiff’s request that she receive the medical care needed for gender dysphoria such as hormone therapy, access to permanent body hair removal, and access to gender affirming canteen items. The court, however, denied the plaintiff’s request that the defendants’ policy should be declared unconstitutional. The court’s rationale was that there should not be a blanket rule in cases involving medical care and individuals incarcerated within a prison system. These decisions, according to the court, should be individualized. For that same reason, declaratory relief was denied. 2018 WL 806764.

The plaintiff continued to challenge the defendants’ policy. On February 26, 2018, the plaintiff amended her complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief. This amendment clarified that the plaintiff was not only challenging the application of the policy but also the constitutionality of the policy on its face.

On March 30, 2018, the plaintiff updated her request for declaratory judgment and a permanent injunction. And then, on May 22, 2018, the court granted the plaintiff’s request for declaratory relief and a permanent injunction. The court declared that the defendants’ failure to provide the necessary medical care was a violation of the Eighth Amendment. Moreover, the freeze-frame policy violated the Eighth Amendment by failing to account for individual medical needs of transgender prisoners who suffer from gender dysphoria, and the defendants were prohibited from implementing the freeze frame policy. The defendants were ordered to provide treatment medically necessary for the plaintiff’s gender dysphoria, including hormone therapy, permanent hair removal, and access to gender-affirming canteen items as long as she remained in custody. The defendants did not oppose the plaintiff’s motions and, prior to the order, the plaintiff agreed to dismiss the individual Corizon defendants.

Furthermore, the defendants were ordered to pay for the plaintiff’s attorney’s fees and costs under 42 U.S.C. § 1988. The parties were ordered to reach an agreement on a reasonable amount for the attorney’s fees and costs. After some litigation, Magistrate Judge Collins ordered that the defendants must pay $289,164.02 in fees and $65,391.58 in costs on March 27, 2019.

As of May 26, 2020, there are no further entries in the docket, and the permanent injunction against the "freeze-frame" policy remains in force.
