Transgender teen Gavin Grimm will press his case before the Supreme Court, despite the Trump administration’s revocation of protections of transgender students in public schools, reported The Washington Post.
“The Supreme Court late Thursday afternoon asked attorneys for both sides to submit letters by next Wednesday addressing where the case should go from here,” wrote The Post. “The decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit that favored Grimm was based primarily on the Obama administration’s guidance that was rescinded.”
Nan Aron, president of our sister organization Alliance for Justice, criticized Jeff Sessions for his involvement in the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind the protections, stating that he “is wasting no time in confirming that he will be a force for intolerance at the Justice Department. Today Sessions’ DOJ is sending a message of hostility to hundreds of thousands of transgender students across the country.”
