A federal judge on Monday ordered an Indiana school district that a transgender student at John R. Wooden Middle School in Martinsville must be allowed to use the boys’ restroom.
Judge Tanya Walton Pratt granted a preliminary injunction last month that gave the 13-year-old student the right to use restrooms within the middle school in association with the biological female student’s new gender identity.
The Metropolitan School District of Martinsville responded by appealing the ruling to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that if Pratt’s order were reversed on appeal, it “would be disruptive of the school’s operations … and undermine the order and authority of the school.”
