SCOTUS Declines Hearing Case Where Parents Don’t Want Transgender Students Sharing Facilities


On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of a case from parents in Oregon who want to stop transgender students from using locker rooms and bathrooms with students of the same biological sex, The Associated Press reported. “The petition filed by the advocacy group Parents for Privacy was rejected by the justices without comment,” Law and Crime stated. The case, Parents for Privacy v. Barr, involved a high school student in Oregon who is biologically a girl but says she is a boy. The Dallas School district in Oregon’s policy gave the student the right to share locker rooms and bathrooms with boys. In 2017, parents of students in the school sued the district, arguing that the policy infringed on the privacy rights of their children.
