"Tolerant re-hab sued for transgender bias."

<Grunts>... seems like there's an contradiction in there somewhere. Just can't put my finger on it.

It also doesn't say much for the Phoenix house that they tried to get the case dismissed. I supposed any good lawyer would have advised them to do so, but in trying to get it dismissed sounds like they either had something to hide, or more than likely...felt they did no wrong.
