Judge greenlights lawsuit against doctors advising girl’s gender transition

A North Carolina judge allowed a 25-year-old woman, Prisha Mosley, to proceed with a lawsuit ⁤against “gender-affirming doctors“‌ who advised her‌ transition at 16, despite the dismissal of some charges. This groundbreaking case marks a significant step for detransitioners seeking justice ⁢for irreversible decisions made during mental health treatment. Mosley’s experiences shed light on the complexities of transgender healthcare practices.

A North Carolina judge ruled that a woman who was convinced to transition from a girl to a boy as a 16-year-old could proceed with a lawsuit against the so-called “gender-affirming doctors” who treated her.

Now 25 years old, Prisha Mosley filed her lawsuit in July 2023, suing multiple doctors who advised her to proceed with the transition after she was diagnosed with various mental health disorders. Mosley’s suit accused the doctors of medical malpractice, civil conspiracy, negligent infliction of emotional distress and unfair and deceptive trade practices, breach of fiduciary duty rising to the level of constructive fraud, facilitating fraud, and fraud, Fox News reported.

“[T]he Court has determined as a matter of law that the allegations of Plaintiff’s Complaint, treated as true, are sufficient to state a claim upon which relief may be granted,” North Carolina Superior Court Judge Robert Ervin stated.

After the defendants requested a dismissal, Ervin agreed to dismiss the charges of medical malpractice, negligent infliction, unfair, and deceptive trade practices, and breach of fiduciary duty, Fox News reported. Ervin allowed the charges of civil conspiracy and fraud to proceed.

It is believed to be the first “detransitioner” lawsuit that was permitted to continue in the judicial system, according to Mosley’s attorney, Josh Payne.

“This is the first substantive ruling we are aware of in which a Court has held that a detransitioner’s case against her health care professionals is legally viable. We are honored to represent Prisha as she pursues justice for herself and her family and tries to prevent what happened to her from happening to others,” read a statement from Payne.

Mosley recalled her experiences of how doctors suggested she become a boy and undergo surgeries with irreversible consequences, such as removing her breasts. The suggestions, Mosley claimed, were part of the treatment for the mental health problems for which she was diagnosed.

“By age 16, I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and an eating disorder,” Mosley wrote. “I engaged in self-harm by cutting myself, which became so serious that I was taken to the emergency room.”

“Starting when I was 16 years old, and continuing into my teen and young adult years, doctors and counselors set me on a path of medicalized ‘gender transition,’” Mosley said. “They told me that changing my body to look like a boy’s body would cure my mental health problems. They told me that injecting large amounts of testosterone into my female body would be good for me. They also encouraged me to undergo surgery to remove my healthy breasts.

“I trusted these health care providers to take care of me. Because of that relationship of trust, and my vulnerable condition, I believed what they said and I thought they were treating me properly,” Mosley wrote. “Years later, I realized that I had been lied to and misled in the worst possible way. Years of taking testosterone prevented my body from developing as it should have. It caused significant vaginal atrophy and the inability to have intercourse.”

“My voice was permanently changed; I was no longer able to lift my voice and sing, which I used to love doing,” Mosley claimed. “I experienced severe pain in my shoulders, neck, and genital area. I do not know if I will be able to conceive and give birth to a child.”

“As a result of breast surgery, I have to live without my breasts, and I am unable to nurse a child, should I be able to conceive one. I have pain in my chest where my breasts used to be,” Mosley wrote.


Mosley commented on the Court’s decision to allow her lawsuit to proceed. She spoke of the stress of the legal process in her case but expressed optimism with Ervin’s ruling.

“I am grateful that the Court has recognized my case has merit. The legal process can be daunting,” Mosley said. “I am encouraged by the Court’s ruling in my favor, and I am determined to see the case through to a final victory. Young people struggling with their mental health, like I was, deserve better. They need compassionate support. They do not deserve to be lied to and misled into life-altering medical procedures that only cause harm.”

  1. I’m sad that Prisha has gone through such pain and now distrusts those who take the oath to “first, do no harm.”
