Appeals Judge Fast-tracks Transgender Case

All New Briefs

Federal judge urges prompt appeal to Court on transgender rights: Arguing that “time is of the essence,” a federal appeals court judge has called for a prompt appeal to the Supreme Court to sort out the rights of transgender students when they use restrooms at school.  At issue in the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board is the meaning of a 1972 federal civil rights law that outlaws discrimination “because of sex” in federally funded education.  Specially at issue is whether that law — known as “Title IX” —  provides protection to students who identify as having a gender other than what was assigned to them at birth.
