Federal Judge tells passport agency to reconsider decision to deny passport for intersex citizen

Excerpt from Courthouse News:

 A federal judge asked the Colorado Passport Agency to reconsider its decision to deny an intersex Coloradan’s passport after the agency said it did not want to offer a third gender option on its passport application.

Judge Brooke Jackson remanded the case Tuesday, after finding the agency’s decision to deny Dana Zzyym a passport “unpersuasive.”
“The administrative record contains no evidence that the Department followed a rational decision making process in deciding to implement its binary-only gender passport policy,” Judge Jackson’s order says.
