A male high school student in a Virginia suburb has told the state’s highest court that he became “distressed,” “nervous,” and “terrified” after the school board instituted a policy for transgender students.

The student and his parents unsuccessfully sued the Fairfax County School Board, and last week the Virginia Supreme Court agreed to take up their appeal.

“When school administrators give in to the Obama administration’s radical school shower and locker room policies, they should expect lawsuits from parents concerned by the unnecessary endangerment to their children’s privacy, safety, and innocence,” Roger Severino, director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal.

“Jack Doe,” his parents “John and Jane Doe,” and Andrea Lafferty, president of the Traditional Values Coalition, filed a lawsuit over the Fairfax County school district’s nondiscrimination policy and the student handbook’s code of conduct.
