Supreme Court Cancels Transgender Bathroom Ban Case

March 7, 2017

 

 

The Supreme Court was supposed to hear arguments this month related to a transgender student — Gavin Grimm — and his right to access the restroom that corresponds with his gender identity. 

 

This case was based on a Virginia school board disagreeing with the Obama administration’s guidelines that advised public schools to allow transgender students to use their preferred restrooms. 

 

But President Trump has rescinded that guideline two weeks ago, so the Supreme Court cancelled the scheduled arguments and directed the Fourth Circuit court of appeals to reconsider its decision to require the Virginia school board to allow the transgender student to use his preferred restroom. 

 

Now the Fourth Circuit has to hear arguments again and decide if blocking transgender students from choosing their restroom is considered to be a violation of Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in education.
