Judges dismiss challenge to gender guidelines in Maryland school system

August 15, 2023

A federal appeals court threw out a Maryland case challenging guidelines that allow schools to create support plans for transgender or gender-nonconforming students and do not require the knowledge or consent of the students’ parents. The decision Monday by the majority in a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit did not address the merits of guidelines written by Montgomery County Public Schools. Instead, it said the parents in the case lacked standing. The judges sent the case back to district court to be dismissed.
