Hearing on detention of Jane Doe canceled

HARTFORD, Conn. – A federal judge canceled a hearing Monday on a civil rights complaint against the state regarding its detention of a transgender teen.

U.S. District Judge Robert Chatigny was expected to hear arguments Monday in the case, but the hearing on the preliminary injunction was canceled and a status conference has been scheduled for Wednesday.

Jane Doe’s attorney, Aaron Romano, said Monday that there’s progress being made and they are looking forward to transferring her out prison in the next few days.

A state judge ordered the teen into the custody of the Corrections Department in April after the Department of Children and Families said she was too violent to handle.
