NEW YORK – The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a stay in the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. The case was brought by Gavin Grimm, a transgender teenage boy, against his school board in Gloucester County, Va., for adopting a discriminatory restroom policy that prohibits transgender students from using the same restrooms as their peers. Joshua Block, senior staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union, had the following reaction:
“We are disappointed that the Court has issued a stay and that Gavin will have to begin another school year isolated from his peers and stigmatized by the Gloucester County School Board just because he’s a boy who is transgender. We remain hopeful that Gavin will ultimately prevail.”
