Federal Court Rejects Female Athletes’ Bid To Scrap Transgender Sports Policy In Connecticut

  • “Like the district court, we are unpersuaded, with respect to the claim for an injunction to alter the records, that Plaintiffs have established the injury in fact and redressability requirements for standing; both fail for reasons of speculation,” the judges wrote.
  • The judges said that because the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, which governs high school sports, “did not have adequate notice that the Policy violates Title IX — indeed, they had notice to the contrary — Plaintiffs’ claims for damages must be dismissed.”
  • The judges also referred to the Supreme Court’s 2020 decision ruling that the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity as well as sex.
