The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jeremy Tedesco
regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-3 decision
Wednesday in Gloucester County School Board v. G.G.
to place a temporary hold on a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit that required a Virginia school district to open up its restrooms to members of the opposite sex:
“Schools have a duty to protect the privacy and safety of all students. That’s a principle that numerous other courts—including the 4th Circuit itself—have upheld. Federal law specifically authorizes schools to have single-sex restrooms and locker rooms, as the judge who dissented from the 4th Circuit’s decision rightly noted. The Supreme Court did the right thing in placing the 4th Circuit panel’s mandate and the preliminary injunction entered by the district court on hold until the high court itself has a chance to decide if it will take up this case.”
