Shaye Rasmussen (Australia)

A Lake Macquarie (Australia) man who claimed he was discriminated against by police because he was transgender and identifies as a woman had his case dismissed as ‘‘lacking in substance’’ by the Administrative Decisions Tribunal. Shaye Rasmussen, of Chain Valley Bay North, initially complained to the Anti-Discrimination Board after he was arrested and charged with assault in January last year, the tribunal found recently. Rasmussen later pleaded guilty to assaulting his brother and assaulting police and then complained that police discriminated against him on the grounds of his transgender status.
