THe case of Virginian transgender pupil who sues his school over bathroom policy will be heard in the USA highest judicial institution. Virginia school district challenged the Obama administration guidelines that require students to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that they identify with, rather than what matches their birth gender.
“These sorts of discriminatory policies stigmatize and isolate transgender students like Gavin just because of who they are,” ACLU attorney Joshua Block said in a statement, “We look forward to presenting Gavin’s case to the Supreme Court as the next step in the fight to ensure fairness and equality for trans people across the country.”
Justices announced they would hear the case on on Friday, and it is likely to be heard in April with a final decision being announced in June. The US Supreme Court in the summer ruled that the school could temporarily block the trans student from using male bathroom facilities during the legal battle.
