Constitutional Right To Transgender Public School Bathrooms?

A transgender student’s lawyers claim there is one and a federal judge is giving him the right to try to prove it in court. “A Virginia public school district will pursue an appeal after a federal judge ruled that a transgender student can challenge the district’s bathroom access policies under federal civil rights law and the Constitution,” Kevin Dealey reported in a story distributed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Gloucester County Public Schools asked U.S. District Court Judge Arenda Wright Allen to allow its appeal on Friday.”

“Allen’s late May decision allowing the student to bring a case against the district was not a final judgement, meaning the district must secure Allen’s approval before filing an appeal.”
