A federal appeals court in Virginia has made a decision that could have some wide-ranging implications, including for North Carolina's debated "bathroom bill."
In a 2-1 ruling, the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has determined that banning a transgender teen from using a boys bathroom is discriminatory.
"No kid struggling to be accepted and struggling to accept themselves should have to simultaneously battle for the right to use the correct bathroom," Gavin Grimm said.
