  • Supreme Court to hear case of transgender bathroom policy

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court will take up transgender rights for the first time in the case of a Virginia school board that wants to prevent a transgender teenager from using the boys' bathroom at his high school.

    The justices said Friday they will hear the appeal from the Gloucester County school board sometime next year. The high court's order means that student Gavin Grimm will not be able to use the boys' bathroom in the meantime.

    The court could use the case to resolve similar disputes across the country, said Shannon Minter, legal director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. "Obviously, for transgender people, the stakes of this case are incredibly high. Whatever the court rules in Grimm may ensure that transgender people are accepted and included as equal members of our society, or it may relegate them to outsiders for decades to come," Minter said.

    A lower court had ordered the school board to accommodate Grimm, but the justices in August put that order on hold while they considered whether to hear the appeal.

    How come I expect a split 4 - 4 ruling...?

      Because you've got half a brain. And that suggests the lower ruling will be upheld, which makes the hearing academic.

        Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            Now the far left is as stupid as the evolution denying religious right. The human brain has shrinking for thousands of years maybe critical negative mass has been reached.

              And, this is supposedly the "big" issue for the transgendered, when they have a near 50% suicide rate...

              Yea, sure...

                  I guess not.
                  As far as I am concerned SCOTUS has more important rulings to make other than ruling on bathrooms.

                    I'm surprised Hillary has declared herself the first transgendered candidate for the presidency, just like Billy claiming to be the first black one...

                        Can we just pay the little bastard to use diapers and he can wait to empty them out once back home? Why does the rest of the school have to be inconvenienced for the little bastard? Oh, I'm using the word bastard because I have no idea what proper pronoun to use here.

                            Yes, abusing children is a good thing.
