Court deals blow to chal­lenge of schools’ LGBT pro­tec­tions

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

The Vir­ginia Supreme Court has dealt a blow to a bid to over­turn pro­tec­tions for gay and trans­gen­der stu­dents at a north­ern Vir­ginia school dis­trict.

An­drea Laf­ferty, pres­i­dent of the Tra­di­tional Val­ues Coali­tion, and a stu­dent filed a law­suit af­ter the Fair­fax County School Board voted to add “sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion” and “gen­der iden­tity” to its non-dis­crim­i­na­tion pol­icy.

The state Supreme Court up­held a lower-court rul­ing dis­miss­ing the suit, say­ing Ms. Laf­ferty and the stu­dent lacked stand­ing to bring the chal­lenge.
