Transgender SF woman gets restraining order against ex-DMV worker

A transgender San Francisco woman has obtained a temporary restraining order against the former Department of Motor Vehicles worker who sent her an attack letter in October.

Amber Yust, 23, filed a claim last week against the state DMV after former staffer Thomas Demartini, 39, sent her a letter calling homosexuality an “abomination.” The letter also suggested Yust should be “put to death.” Yust’s claim signifies that she intends to file a lawsuit against the state agency.

San Francisco Superior Court records show the temporary restraining granted yesterday (Thursday, December 16) is a re-issuance.

Demartini, who hasn’t responded to interview requests, resigned Wednesday, December 15, according to the DMV.

Among other conditions, the order prohibits Demartini from contacting Yust and states that he must stay at least 50 yards away from her.

The order was originally issued Tuesday, December 14 but apparently was reissued because of the hearing date being rescheduled. The order is set to end January 5, the new hearing date.

If Demartini violates the orders, he could be face jail time and a fine of up to $1,000.
