Ash Whitaker’s Attorney: Federal Guidance Has No Bearing On Kenosha Case

Posted by Pete Serzant, WLIP News

(AP)–A lawyer for a transgender student in Kenosha who won a lawsuit against Tremper High School says revocation of federal guidance related to bathroom use would not impact his case. In September, a federal judge ordered Tremper to allow senior Ash Whitaker to use the boys’ bathroom. His attorney said Wednesday the court’s ruling relied on cases showing it is unlawful to discriminate against transgender people, not on guidance issued by former President Barack Obama’s administration. President Trump plans to revoke Obama’s guidance. Tremper is appealing Whitaker’s victory.
