A transgender woman filed a privacy claim Wednesday against the California Department of Motor Vehicles after one of its workers found her personal contact information and sent a letter to her home condemning her gender identity.
Amber Yust said she received the letter less than a week after going to the DMV in October to changer her license. The Associated Press reports that Yust's claim is the first step toward suing the DMV for privacy invasion and violating her civil rights.
As reported in October, the letter Yust received said she was an "abomination," that she made a "very evil decision," and that she was going to go to hell.
