Teacher Wins Lawsuit over Transgender Pronoun

“A teacher in Virginia has won a lawsuit in the Loudoun County Circuit Court against the Loudoun County School System through Alliance Defending Freedom after the district’s administration placed him on leave for opposing measures that would promote transgender ideology in local schools. Byron Tanner Cross, a physical education teacher at Leesburg Elementary School, sued the Loudon County School Board last week for penalizing him for voicing concern about two proposed policies. The Circuit Court agreed with him and halted the School System’s actions against Cross. Alliance Defending Freedom’s Michael Farris commented, ‘We are pleased at the court’s decision to halt Loudoun County Public Schools’ retaliation against Tanner Cross while his lawsuit continues. Educators are just like everybody else–they have ideas and opinions that they should be free to express. Advocating for solutions they believe in should not cost them their jobs.’”
