LEXIS 282 (Feb. 4, 1997) (dismissing sex discrimination claim alleging violations of Connecticut Fair Employment Practice Act; however, the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities ruled in 2000 that transsexuals may bring sex discrimination claims under state law, based in part on case law that was issued after the Conway decision); Underwood v. Archer Management Services, Inc., 857 F. Supp. 96 (D.D.C. 1994) (dismissing sex discrimination claim alleging violations of the D.C.
