A Circuit Court judge in Virginia’s Fairfax County has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the school board’s decision to add gender identity and sexual orientation to its nondiscrimination policies.  The lawsuit, which comes from Andrea Lafferty, head of the Traditional Values Coalition and an unnamed student, argues that the Virginia General Assembly has never given school boards the authority to add such protections for their students and staff.  Lafferty and her lawyers claim their case was wrongfully dismissed, and are planning to appeal the judge’s decision.
