The Supreme Court must have read my blog post from earlier in the week,
Supreme Court takes up school bathroom rules for transgender students

The Supreme Court on Friday said it will decide whether the Obama administration may require public school systems to let transgender students use bathrooms that align with their gender identity, putting the court once again at the center of a divisive social issue.

School districts across the country are split on how to accommodate transgender students in the face of conflicting guidance from courts, the federal government and, in some cases, state legislatures that have passed laws requiring people to use public restrooms that coincide with the sex on their birth certificates.
This is BIG! The U.S. Department of Justice, the Department of Education, the EEOC, HUD, and a number of other federal agencies have based their protection on us because of lower court cases that found we were protected under Title VII and Title IX of the Civil Rights Act because of a Supreme Court ruling dating back to the 1989 Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins ruling that sex discrimination also includes sex stereotyping.

Now it is nail biting time. How will they rule a 4-4 tie and then the appeals court decision stands? 5-3 in our favor and it becomes the law of the land or a 3-5 ruling and we lose all that we have gained on the federal level for the last eight years.
