(Worthy News) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear a legal challenge to a Pennsylvania school district's policy that allows transgender students to use whichever restroom they identify with.
The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom group has argued the Boyertown District's policy violates student privacy. The high court, however, said it wouldn't take up the case, meaning the decision last year in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals will stand. The appellate court ruled in favor of restroom freedom.
The American Civil Liberties Union represented student Aidan DeStefano in the case. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
