A Pennsylvania school district will allow students to use restrooms corresponding to their gender identity in settling a federal lawsuit brought last year by three transgender students.
Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund announced the settlement Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
A federal judge in February issued a preliminary injunction stopping the Pine-Richland School District from enforcing a policy that made bathroom use conditional upon a student’s biological sex only. The district confirmed the settlement, which Lambda called “a victory for transgender students everywhere” and a “clear warning to school districts with anti-transgender bathroom policies.”
