ACLU of Iowa will present its Dan Johnston Cooperating Attorney Award to Nixon Peabody partners Seth Horvath, Thomas Hecht and Tina Solis. The team of Chicago-based attorneys worked on transgender rights lawsuits in Iowa challenging denial of coverage under Medicaid. In March, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that the denial was discriminatory and a violation of the Iowa Civil Rights Act. The attorneys will receive the award at the Iowa Bill of Rights Brunch on Oct. 12. The three volunteered hundreds of hours.
