A federal judge ruled Friday against a Virginia school board’s policy barring a transgender former student, Gavin Grimm, from using the men’s restroom, according to The Associated Press.

Under the Gloucester County School Board’s policy, Grimm was required to use either the women’s room or a private restroom. In her decision, U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen in Norfolk wrote that there was “no question” the policy discriminated against trans students.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Under the policy, all students except for transgender students may use restrooms corresponding with their gender identity,” she wrote. “Transgender students are singled out, subjected to discriminatory treatment, and excluded from spaces where similarly situated students are permitted to go.”

The board will also be required to update the gender on Grimm’s high school transcripts under Allen’s ruling.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren issued the following statement: “This is a big win for @GavinGrimmVA and trans Americans across the country. When we fight, we win—and we won’t stop fighting until all trans people can live without fear or discrimination.”
