WV AG Issues Statement On Transgender Ruling

August 4th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey issues the following statement regarding a stay issued by the U.S. Supreme Court in a transgender case arising out of Gloucester County, Virginia.
“We applaud the Supreme Court for staying the Fourth Circuit’s erroneous decision until it has had an opportunity to consider whether to review the case.  As always, I am committed to defending West Virginia schools from federal overreach. That is why we opposed the federal government below and will continue to support the efforts to persuade the Supreme Court to overturn the Fourth Circuit.

"This decision, combined with separate arguments by our coalition of 11 states, underscore why West Virginia schools should stay the course and not make hasty decisions until all legal challenges are concluded.”
