“A Minnesota federal appeals court recently heard the case of a mother who claims her underage son was given a sex change operation without her consent.
Anmarie Calgaro sued her county, school district, and medical care providers for allegedly bypassing her consent as the legal guardian, and giving her child transgender services and narcotic drugs.
Calgaro originally filed the lawsuit in 2016 but was represented by the Thomas More Society before a three-judge panel on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals…
District Court Judge Paul Magnuson ruled in May 2017 that Calgaro’s son was not legally emancipated and her parental rights ‘remain intact.’ However, he ruled against the mother, arguing that the parties involved could not be sued for violating her rights.
‘The School District argues that Calgaro has failed to plausibly allege that the execution of a School District policy or custom caused the deprivation of Calgaro’s parental rights. The School District is correct,’ Judge Magnuson ruled.”
