Defendant's Attorney: Indiana Attorney General's Office
Description: Indianapolis, Indiana civil rights lawyers represented Plaintiffs who sued the Defendants claiming that their constitutional rights were being violated.
A.C., B.E., and S.E. are three boys with a simple request: they want to use the boys’ bathrooms
at their schools. But because the three boys are transgender, the districts said no. The boys sued the districts and the school principals, alleging sex discrimination in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The boys also requested preliminary injunctions that would order the
schools to grant them access to the boys’ bathrooms and, in the case of B.E. and S.E., access to the boys’ locker rooms when changing for gym class. The district courts in both cases granted the preliminary injunctions, relying on our decision in Whitaker ex rel. Whitaker v. Kenosha Unified School District No. 1 Board of Education, 858 F.3d 1034 (7th Cir. 2017).
