Case

Maday v. Township High School District 211

Last Updated: 6/2/2020

Overview

Summary

The American Civil Liberties Union is misusing non-discrimination provisions within the Illinois Human Rights Act to dismantle student privacy at Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Illinois. Though the ACLU claims that the state law requires boys to given unrestricted access to girls’ locker rooms, the law actually exempts from the law “any facility…which is distinctly private in nature such as restrooms, shower rooms, bath houses, health clubs and other similar facilities for which the Department, in its rules and regulations, may grant exemptions based on bona fide considerations of public policy.”
