Jesse Hammons

Hammons v. UMMS

Status: Closed (Judgment)
Last Update: January 12, 2023

What's at Stake

Jesse Hammons was denied a commonly performed medical procedure at the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center because he is transgender. The taxpayer-owned hospital claims that providing Hammons with medical care would be a violation of their religious beliefs.


The American Civil Liberties Union, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP and Rosenberg Martin Greenberg, LLP filed the lawsuit in federal court.
