A state administrative law judge has ruled that a transgender woman should not have been ordered out of a courthouse women’s restroom by a sheriff’s deputy.

The judge decided in favor of Jodie Jones, who has been presenting herself as a woman since May 2011, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported. The ruling by Administrative Law Judge Heather Palmer came last Tuesday.
