An injunction has been ordered against a man who threatened to kill a transgender woman after she used the womens locker room at a Nashua Planet Fitness gym earlier this year, the New Hampshire attorney generals office said Monday.

The Hillsborough County Superior Court-Southern District found that Marc Bernier violated the states Civil Rights Act when he made the threats based upon his belief that she should not have used the womens locker room because (of) her gender and Mr. Berniers perception of her gender, Attorney General Gordon MacDonalds office said in a statement.

Bernier repeatedly made threats to the other gym patron on March 17 after he learned she is transgender and used the locker room to change her clothes, officials said.

The court enjoined Mr. Bernier from contacting the victim, from knowingly coming within 250 feet of the victim, and from entering the Planet Fitness located at 18 Northwest Boulevard in Nashua, the statement says. The injunction will last for one year.

Bernier must also pay a $3,000 civil penalty with all except $500 suspended for one year under the condition that he comply with the terms of the injunction, according to MacDonalds office.
