Quine who was born a man but identifies as a woman, will be transferred to a women's prison, according to Quine’s attorneys.
The Transgender Law Center which represented Quine and other transgender prisoners says the case is a victory "for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need."
The center argued that that the state was legally required to pay for the procedure under the Eighth Amendment which states prisons must “provide inmates with medically necessary treatment for medical and mental health conditions including inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria,"
The case has also led to a federal magistrate requirement that obliges the state of California to provide transgender inmates in men's facilities with more female-oriented items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces.
Quine was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom for his part in the killing of 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig, a father of three, in downtown Los Angeles in February 1980. She has no possibility of parole.
