Supreme Court To Decide on School Restroom Ban for Transgender Students
WASHINGTON, DC, October 28, 2016—The United States Supreme Court has decided to consider the case of Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy from Virginia, who wanted to use the restroom at his school that aligned with his gender identity. A lower court ruled in his favor but the ruling was stayed by the Supreme Court for further consideration.
“We are pleased that Gavin’s case will now be considered by the Supreme Court. In taking the case, the Court is making history as it’s the first time it has considered transgender freedom, justice and equality. Our hope is that it will make history again by affirming that stopping Gavin and other transgender children from using the restroom that matches their gender identities is sex discrimination and therefore illegal under Title IX,” said Victoria M. Rodríguez-Roldán, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project Director.
