The opening brief in Gloucester County v. GG has been filed at the Supreme Court. as of now, argument has not been set, but based on the revised briefing schedule, the case will likely be argued in March or April.
The case involves GG, a student in high school in Virginia who is transgender and wants to use the correct bathroom at his school. The school board created a policy refusing to allow him to do so. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with him, ruling that the Obama administration’s guidance letters on the question of transgender bathroom use should be granted deference under current Supreme Court precedent.
The opening brief in the Supreme Court was filed by the school board. A brief from GG is expected February 23.
