Transgender bathroom case takes a step backward

Hosted by

This month, the US Supreme court was scheduled to hear the appeal of a lower court decision allowing transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identities. It was based in part on guidance from the Obama Administration. The Trump Administration has withdrawn support, and that was enough to delay the action.

We hear from Adam Liptak, Supreme Court correspondent for the New York Times, and Josh Block, senior attorney at the ACLU's LGBT Project and lead counsel for 17-year old transgender high school student Gavin Grimm.
