SCOTUS Denies Review In Transgender Bathroom Case

The U.S. Supreme Court today denied review in Parents for Privacy v. Barr, (Docket No. 20-62, certiorari denied 12/7/2020). (Order List). In the case, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an Oregon school district's policy of allowing transgender students to use school bathrooms, locker rooms and showers that correspond to their gender identity. (See prior posting.) The petition for certiorari had raised privacy, religious and parental rights, and Title IX claims.
