The Supreme Court decided against hearing arguments in a case over the constitutionality of restroom policies that prevent transgender students from using the bathroom of their choice in public schools, handing a victory to LGBT+ activists. The decision to not hear arguments in Gloucester County School Board v Grimm means that a lower court ruling that found such policies to be unconstitutional as well as in violation of federal Title IX protections will stand. [The Independent] Transgender student wins as Supreme Court rebuffs bathroom appeal The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to take up a major transgender rights case, leaving in place a lower court's ruling that a Virginia public school board acted unlawfully in preventing a transgender student from using a bathroom at his high school that corresponded with his gender identity. The justices opted not to hear the Gloucester County School Board's appeal of a 2020 ruling by the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that transgender student Gavin Grimm is protected under the federal law that bars sex discrimination in education, known as Title IX, and the U.S. Constitution's requirement that people be treated equally under the law. The 4th Circuit ruling does not set a national legal precedent. The Supreme Court's decision to reject the appeal represents a victory for Grimm, who sued the school board in 2015 after officials at a local public high school refused to allow him to use the boys' restrooms. The Supreme Court previously took up the case in 2016 but did not issue a ruling and sent it back to lower courts. [Fox News] Since this was simply sent back to the lower court’s decision this means that all bans on transgender facility use are found found to be unconstitutional nationwide. Seems even a packed conservative court sees these bans as what they are.
