Transgender student sues Illinois district over locker room

PALATINE, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago school district that previously faced a federal complaint over a transgender student’s use of a girls’ locker room is now facing a lawsuit over the issue.

Palatine High School senior Nova Maday filed the lawsuit Thursday against Palatine’s Township High School. The lawsuit asks that Maday be allowed to use the girls’ locker room to change for physical education classes.

Attorneys with the American Civil Liberties Union are representing the 18-year-old student, who says school officials have made her change in other facilities. 

The district previously allowed a transgender student at a different high school to use the girls’ locker room with a private changing station. 

District Superintendent Daniel Cates says the lawsuit “misrepresents the accommodations extended the student.”
