[Ed. – The Supremes have only stayed the lower court ruling that the schools must allow the trans student to use the boys’ bathroom immediately. The justices will be deciding whether to take up the case. The decision does mark a brief setback for the Obama administration, which has been trying to strong-arm and extort school districts on this matter using Department of Education bureaucratic processes.]
The Supreme Court decided Wednesday to put a hold on a ruling that would have required a Virginia school district to allow a transgender high school student to use the boy’s bathroom.
The eight justices split 5-3, with Democrat-appointed Justice Stephen Breyer siding with the Republican-appointed judges that the Gloucester County public school system does not have to accommodate student Gavin Grimm’s request to use the bathroom of his choice.
