Nikki Araguz suffers under inconsistent and unjust Texas laws.
Nikki Araguz is a transgender female who married a Texas firefighter. In 2010 she became a widow and the court denied her right to receive her husband’s death benefits. Nikki wants to re-marry and the state of Texas claims she cannot legally marry her fiance.
Is it worth a federal challenge, yet?
Thanks for your comment. It’s still too early for a federal challenge. Nikki is just starting her fight at the county level and collecting evidence to use against Texas. If you visit her website you will see
a list of Nikki’s legal representatives. It’s likely that Nikki is proceeding under their guidance as we speak. I think this will be an interesting case to follow.
