CFJ applauds transgender case’s remand


Statement of CFJ President Curt Levey on the Supreme Court’s remand today of the landmark transgender rights case,Gloucester County School Board v. G.G.:


The Committee for Justice applauds the Supreme Court for respecting its less-than-omnipotent role in the American legal system by remanding this potentially landmark case — originally scheduled for oral argument later this month — back to the Fourth Circuit. Now that the Trump Administration has withdrawn the Obama Education Department guidance on which the Fourth Circuit’s decision for the transgender plaintiff was based, returning the case to the Fourth Circuit was the only decision respectful of the Court’s limited role under the Constitution.
