The Daily Press reports that today U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar threw out part of the student’s claim, and also said it is “highly unlikely” that he will grant a preliminary injunction requiring Gloucester County school officials to allow 16-year-old Gavin Grimm to use the boys’ facilities this fall.
In December, Gloucester County school system issued a policy requiring Grimm, who was born female but lives as a male, to use either the girls’ restrooms or a private facility.
The judge decided the policy does not violate federal discrimination laws.
Judge Doumar’s written opinion formalizing that decision on the injunction request will be issued later.
The court still must decide whether the policy violates the U.S. Constitution’s equal protection clause.bellyitchblog.com+1 more Over 9 million people have enjoyed Bellyitch's Award-winning Celeb "bumpwatch" pregnancy and parenting blog.
