Cormier was wrongfully denied the benefits of her contract with Planet Fitness and wrongfully denied the use of the public accommodations at Defendant's gym because she objected to Defendant's unknown policy," a press release from Kallman Legal Group states."The policy allows men who self-identify as women to use the women's facilities, including the women's locker room and showers." The law firm also states that the case is also relevant to the possible expansion of Michigan's civil rights laws.
