School set­tles trans­gen­der re­stroom suit

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

PITTSBURGH — A Penn­syl­va­nia school dis­trict paid three trans­gen­der grad­u­ates $20,000 each to set­tle their law­suit chal­leng­ing its re­stroom pol­icy.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ob­tained the fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion Tues­day from the Pine-Rich­land School Dis­trict un­der the state’s right-to-know law. The plain­tiffs’ at­tor­neys re­ceived $75,000.

Last week, the dis­trict agreed to let stu­dents use re­strooms cor­re­spond­ing to their “con­sis­tently and uni­formly as­serted gen­der iden­tity” in set­tling the suit by the three stu­dents.

Two stu­dents born anatom­i­cally male who now iden­tify as fe­male and one born anatom­i­cally fe­male who iden­ti­fies as male sued in Oc­to­ber to over­turn in­terim rules that re­quired stu­dents to use re­strooms cor­re­spond­ing to their anatom­i­cal sex.
