A federal judge has ordered that a Georgia state legislative aide who said she was fired because of discrimination should get her job back.

U.S. District Judge Richard W. Story on Tuesday ordered that Vandy Beth Glenn be reinstated to her job as an editor in the Georgia General Assembly's Office of Legislative Counsel no later than Monday.

Glenn, a transgender woman formerly known as Glenn Morrison, said in a 2008 lawsuit that her boss, Legislative Counsel Sewell Brumby, fired her after she told him she would come to work dressed as a woman as she transitioned from man to woman.

Glenn's lawyer Gregory Nevins says his client is pleased with the judge's order.

Story set a Friday morning hearing for an expected motion to stay.

Brumby's lawyers did not immediately return calls Wednesday seeking comment.
