Inmate who won order for sex reassignment surgery recommended for parole, 2015

California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris is challenging the order in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, on behalf of the state corrections department, arguing that drug therapy and prison counseling made surgery medically unnecessary.

In seeking a stay to postpone surgery while the case is litigated, the ["]attorney general's office["] said the only urgency was the potential for Norsworthy to be paroled, which would make her case moot.

["]The state["] also argued that it would face security problems in determining where to house a gender-reassigned inmate, though the state system already has at least one prisoner who changed from male to female. That inmate is housed at a women's prison. ["]The state["] told the court it has had to move her several times because of threats and assaults.
