US Court issues landmark ruling in favour of a trans student

In the case of Ashton Whitaker v. Kenosha Unified School District, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a school district violated the rights of a trans student, when it refused to let him use the restroom comporting with his gender identity. The school staff and security had been instructed to prevent him from using the boys’ restroom, according to his complaint. The Court unanimously upheld a preliminary injunction against the school, in the absence of any evidence that such an injunction would inconvenience the school district authorities.
