Transgender Graduates Get $20,000 Each After Restroom Dispute

On 08.09.17 12:30 PM posted by Grace Carr

A Pennsylvania school agreed to pay three transgender students $20,000 each in a settlement allowing the students to use*the restroom corresponding to their gender identity.

The details of the costly settlement—totaling $60,000 awarded to the students*and*$75,000 to their attorney—were*released Tuesday after*the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette requested the information from the*Pine-Richland School District under the state’s sunshine law, according to*U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. District Court Judge Mark Hornak issued a 48-page ruling in February 2016 explaining why the*Pine-Richland policy*discriminated against transgender students*and violated the*14th*Amendment’s equal protection clause, the*Post-Gazette*reported.

The students—two of*whom*identify as female but were born male, and one who*identifies as male but was born female—sued Pine-Richland High School in October 2016. Each complained that the school wouldn’t allow them to use the restroom corresponding with gender identity rather than birth gender.

The high school initially*enforced*its bathroom policies in response to complaints from parents who said that allowing transgender students to use the restroom of their choice violated the privacy of the other students.

By agreeing to settle, the high school now*allows students to use whichever bathroom*“consistently and uniformly [matches their] asserted gender identity.”
