In Re Julianna Tourmaline Fialkowski (USA)


A Lynchburg, Virginia judge approved a name change for a transgender woman whose application previously was denied, her lawyer said. Julianna Tourmaline Fialkowski, 24, sought the change in December but found out after an early January hearing from a notice mailed by Lynchburg Circuit Court Judge F. Patrick Yeatts that he denied the request. Katie D. Fletcher, a Richmond lawyer representing Fialkowski in a second attempt to change the name, said she subsequently received a letter from Yeatts that said Fialkowski complied with requirements of state law and the application was approved. Fialkowski, a Lynchburg College student, said Yeatts asked questions at a hearing in early January about medical history and the notice of the denial came about two weeks later.
