Lafferty, et al. v. School Board of Fairfax County (USA)

Andrea Lafferty, head of the Traditional Values Coalition, and an unnamed minor referred to as “Jack Doe,” filed a brief with the Virginia Supreme Court in their lawsuit against the Fairfax County School Board.  The lawsuit alleges the defendants “violated state law when they added LGBT-specific protections to the district’s nondiscrimination policy in November 2014 and May 2015 respectively.”  Further, the suit describes Doe as being “distressed” regarding the school board’s failure to define “gender identity” or “gender expression” and worries he may face discipline for “unknowingly violating the ambiguous code of conduct.”

According to the reply brief filed with the Virginia Supreme Court, “[t]he question is whether the circuit court should have granted declaratory and injunctive relief instead of dismissing the Complaint with prejudice, because the Board violated Virginia’s long-standing Dillon Rule.”
