On Monday, Gavin Grimm's case, Gavin Grimm v. Gloucester County, was sent back to the lower courts by the Supreme Court. While the lower court initially ruled in Grimm's favor, SCOTUS stated that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals must reconsider the case in light of the Departments of Justice and Education rescinding of a Title IX guidance clarifying protections for transgender students. This means that his case will not be heard by SCOTUS on March 28th as planned.
