Lana Lawless, the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), and the Long Drivers of America (LDA), have announced that they have resolved the legal action relating to the participation of Transgender Females in LPGA and LDA tournaments and other activities.

This resolution will result in the dismissal of the Federal Court Action entitled Lawless v. the Ladies Professional Golf Association and the Long Driver’s of America; United States District Court Case Number CV10 4599 DMR. Despite the resolution, the LPGA and LDA steadfastly deny that they violated any law or engaged in any wrongdoing.

A statement issued by the LPGA stated that “The Ladies Professional Golf Association (“LPGA”) expresses its appreciation to Lana Lawless for raising the issue of transgender participation in its tournaments and other professional activities. Both Ms. Lawless and the LPGA are pleased that the litigation initiated by Ms. Lawless has been resolved in a satisfactory way, and applaud the LPGA members who voted overwhelmingly to remove the “female at birth” provision from its by-laws.”

Ms. Lawless was represented by attorney Christopher Dolan, the transgender rights attorney from The Dolan Law Firm (http://www.cbdlaw.com and http://www.lgbt-lawyer.com ).
