Supreme Court adds transgender bathroom issue to docket

Yesterday, on October 28, 2016, the United States Supreme Court granted cert in Glacouster County School Board v. G.C., the case of a transgender student who identifies as a boy and wants to be allowed to use the boys' bathroom at his high school in the state of Virginia.

Unfortunately, it appears the court may be considering more technical issues in the case, rather than the substantive issue of whether a school must treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity.
