PHOENIX, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 8, Ann Hobart,

Last year, on July 28, attorney Cheri L. McCracken, on behalf of Mr. Bloom, instituted a civil rights lawsuit against the State of Arizona, known as United States District Court Case Number CV17-02524-PHX-DGC. During Mr. Bloom's tenure as a graduate student, he encountered numerous medical emergencies related to the denial of transgender health care. As a new student he encountered a hostile work environment when he refused to publicly discuss matters of his health. He was subjected to discrimination and retaliation in violation of Title VII and Title IX. After Mr. Bloom filed a civil rights complaint with ASU on May 1, 2016, his grants were revoked and the School of Art fabricated reports of threatening and harassing behavior to the Arizona State Police stationed on campus. Mr. Bloom was wrongfully suspended, banned from campus; the student body was publicly notified that he was a safety threat and not to communicate with him.

The aforementioned agreement is currently in dispute after ASU revised the terms of the original agreement adding that Mr. Bloom's suspension would be removed from his educational records only if he agreed not to seek or accept readmittance to ASU.
