Transgender student wants court ruling before graduation

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Attorneys for a transgender teenager who’s suing the Gloucester County school board for the right to use the boys bathroom are asking that arguments be expedited so he might see a ruling before he graduates.The filing yesterday in Gavin Grimm’s case comes two days after the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order handing the case back to a Richmond appeals court without reaching a decision.The motion asks the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to hear arguments in May to facilitate a ruling before Grimm graduates June 10. It says a ruling wouldallow him to attend his graduation “with the dignity of being able to use the same restroom facilities” as his peers.The filing says the school board’s attorney opposes the motion.
