The Supreme Court is upholding a ruling that said transgender students can use the bathroom that matches their gender identity in schools.

The high court refused to hear an appeal to a lower court ruling that said treating transgender students differently violates Title IX, a federal law that bans sex discrimination in schools.

Gavin Grimm, who was born female but identifies as male, has waged a years-long legal battle with the school board in Gloucester County, Virginia. At first, the principal gave him permission to use the boys’ bathroom, but the school board said restrooms were “limited to the corresponding biological genders.” The Supreme Court’s action leaves Grimm’s lower court victories intact.
