Rights activists predicted more cases being brought against Bulgaria at the European Court of Human Rights after the Supreme Court of Cassation in Sofia ruled on Monday that transgender people will no longer be eligible to change documents in accordance with their identity. “The constitution and Bulgarian legislation are built on the understanding of the binary existence of the human species,” the ruling said. Twenty-eight judges voted in favour, but 21 expressed dissenting opinions. According to legal news website, it was a rare case of an issue dividing the court so starkly.
