In Reversal, SCOTUS Won’t Hear Transgender Student’s Case


The Supreme Court announced yesterday that it won't issue a ruling on a case about bathroom access brought by transgender Virginia high school student Gavin Grimm, reversing itself after agreeing last fall to hear the case, which would have been its first dealing with transgender rights. The case brought by Grimm, who wants to be able to use the bathroom that matches his gender identity instead of his sex at birth, will now be sent back to a lower court to reexamine. A federal appeals court ruled in Grimm's favor last year, but after the Trump administration last month withdrew rules issued under former President Barack Obama allowing transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, the Supreme Court wants the appeals court to reconsider its ruling in the light of the new guidelines.
