Soule et al v. CT Association of Schools et al

Location: Connecticut
Status: Ongoing
Last Update: February 8, 2024

What's at Stake

The ACLU has joined a lawsuit defending the interests of trans student athletes in Connecticut.

The lawsuit has been filed against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, multiple school boards, and Andraya Yearwood and Terry Miller, two transgender student athletes.

Update: On December 16, 2022, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed the district court’s judgment in favor of our clients and dismissed the plaintiffs’ complaint. The Court ruled that the plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge a policy that allowed transgender youth to participate on sports teams that align with their gender. The Court also ruled that discrimination against transgender students violates Title IX.
