In the wake of the Trump administration revoking the Obama administration's trans-positive student toilet guidelines the US Supreme Court has canceled the hearing of a trans student’s case to use the men’s toilet in school.

Gavin Grimm, in his last year at a High School in eastern Virginia, was briefly allowed to use the boys’ toilet but he is now using the school nurse’s restroom.

The supreme court justices were scheduled to hear opening arguments on March 28th but have now deflected the case to a lower court. "We'll continue to fight for Gavin and other transgender people to ensure that they are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve," says a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union's LGBT Project.
