Now this is interesting … and possibly precedent setting.
Here in Westchester County, state Supreme Court Justice William J. Giacomo has allowed a 20-year-old transexual to keep his/her identity private by waiving the requirement that a change of name be published in the local newspaper. Giacomo ruled that publishing the transexual’s name might put him/her at risk for hate crimes. The Nov. 10 ruling seals the case files and identifies the transsexual only as E.P.L.
