4th Circuit Court Of Appeals Denies Stay Motion On Transgender Rights Ruling
A three-judge panel from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals just denied the stay motion, by a vote of 2-1, filed Wednesday by Virginia’s Gloucester County School Board, which seeks to ignore the federal government's mandate on transgender student rights.
That filing two days ago had triggered an automatic stay on the pro-trans April order while the Court considered their demand.
Equality Case Files has today’s ruling. The Fourth Circuit Court has jurisdiction over Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
North Carolina's anti-LGBT legislation HB2 could be struck down via this case.
