America's First Transgender Trial Judge

As a Louisiana native, this story excites me because California's newly elected MTF trial judge, Victoria Kolakowski, is originally from Louisiana. In particular, she's from my neck of the woods, the southeast. 

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A California judge with big ties to Louisiana is making history because she was once a man.

Judge Victoria Kolakowski is the first transgender person ever to be elected as a trial judge.

Kolakowski previously served as an administrative law judge before winning her election in California.

The judge's website touts her election as one that made history.

Kolakowski has several degrees.

She's a graduate of UNO, Tulane and LSU Law and actually had to sue to take the bar exam in Louisiana after declaring herself a transsexual.
