Supreme Court Will Rule on Long-Delayed Transgender Rights Case

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday it would hear a transgender rights case that has captured national attention regarding whether students can use school facilities that correspond with their gender identity, rather than their biological sex.

The judges will review an April decision by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals that found Gavin Grimm, a 17-year-old Virginia transgender boy, is legally allowed to use male facilities at his high school in Gloucester County. The school board appealed the ruling.

With the current 4 vs 4 makeup of SCOTUS, I predict another "no judgment" outcome or whatever their terms are for a split vote. States like NC and practically every other in the "Bible Belt" and Midwest will be standing on pins and needles awaiting a decision. Hope they are mightily disappointed.

This would suggest you think the next president will not be able to have a nominee confirmed within three months? Maybe but what is your support for this position. And just how long will the stalemate go on, do you think?
