Virginia Transgender Teen's Case Will Go to Supreme Court
A transgender teen from Virginia will be fighting to use the bathroom of his choice in front of the Supreme Court.
Gavin Grimm, a 17-year-old from Gloucester County, was barred from using the boy’s restroom at his high school because he was born female.
Federal judges stepped in, saying Grimm should be able to use the bathroom of his choice. But the school board appealed that decision, and the Supreme Court announced Friday they will hear the case.
That won’t happen until sometime next year though, so Grimm -- who is now a senior -- won’t get a final answer before he graduates.
But his case will not have ramifications for transgender students at public schools across the country.
