Maine court rules school not obligated to accommodate transgender student


The Penobscot County Superior Court ruled that a school district was not obligated to accommodate a transgender student access and use of the girls’ bathroom because Maine does not have a law requiring that transgenders have full access to public facilities.

This is the same lawsuit that has been going on for several years in Maine. A student who is biologically male but “identifies herself” as female was initially allowed to use the girls’ bathroom, but following an incident, school officials had “her” use a separate staff bathroom instead. The student’s parents then filed suit against the school district.

The warning is clear for Massachusetts: if H 502, the infamous “Bathroom Bill” becomes law, it will specify full access to public facilities and public schools, K through 12, will have to comply.
