Appeal revived in health club lawsuit

MIDLAND (AP) — The Michigan Court of Appeals has been told to take a second look at a lawsuit filed by a woman who said her rights were violated after she encountered a transgender person in the locker room at a Midland health club.

The state Supreme Court says the appeals court erred in declining to consider Yvette Cormier’s claims under the Michigan Consumer Protection Act.

Cormier’s membership at Planet Fitness was terminated in 2015 after she warned other women about a transgender woman at the club.

Planet Fitness told her that it allows people to use the locker room that matches their identity.

The appeals court found no evidence of sexual harassment. The court noted Cormier and the transgender woman were both wearing clothes in the locker room.
