In what is seen as an important legal test for transgender rights, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court heard a case Wednesday on whether an elementary school discriminated against a boy who identifies as a girl when it required her to use a unisex staff bathroom instead of the girls' bathroom.
However, David M. Kalin, an attorney for school officials, including Kelly Clenchy, the former school superintendent, said schools are legally required to provide separate bathrooms based only on sex, not gender identity, and that, given the circumstances, the staff turned to the unisex-bathroom plan because it already had been agreed upon.
