TRANSGENDER LAWSUIT IN FEDERAL COURT
Transgender Bathroom Ban Heard
by Federal Appeals Court
TRANSGENDER LAWSUIT IN APPEALS COURT
A Virginia school board defended its transgender bathroom ban before a federal appeals court Tuesday.
A transgender man who was barred as a student from using the boys’ bathrooms at his high school.
He argued that the policy discriminated against him and violated his constitutional rights.
A judge ruled last year that the Gloucester County School Board had discriminated against Gavin Grimm.
But the board appealed that ruling to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond.
