Virginia state Supreme Court to hear case over school district's LGBT policy

 


The Virginia Supreme Court has agreed to take a case challenging the Fairfax County School Board’s authority to extend nondiscrimination protections to LGBT students.

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, which brought the lawsuit against the school board, said the high court’s decision to hear the case is “very good news” after a lower court dismissed it on procedural grounds.

“The Fairfax County School Board’s lawless act of adding ‘gender identity, expression and sexual orientation’ to the local policy violates state law and harms children,” Mr. Staver said in a statement.
