Big Business Takes Transgender Rights to SCOTUS

Big Business Takes Transgender Rights to SCOTUS
- A coalition of 53 companies have signed on to a brief supporting a Virginia high school student who has brought his fight to use the bathroom that corresponds with his gender identity to the Supreme Court. (Bookmark the brief; it's a full-throated defense of transgender rights, and well worth your time.) The companies include Fortune stalwarts Amazon, Apple, IBM, Intel, and Microsoft. The question at hand is whether the Gloucester County School Board in Virginia violated a federal anti-discrimination law two years ago when they prevented Gavin Grimm, now 17 years old, from using the bathroom of his choice. But now, with the addition of corporate heft, the question has broadened considerably. More on that in a moment.
