A group of girl athletes are appealing a judge’s rejection of their case against a policy that allows male-born “trans” athletes to compete with females in Connecticut high school sports.
After a new pro-LGBT policy was introduced to school sports in Connecticut, biological boys began competing with (and defeating) female athletes in 2017.
A number of female athletes filed suit against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference for creating a situation in which girls no longer have a fair shot at scholarships or championship victories.
On Sunday, District Court Judge Robert Chatigny dismissed their suit. The case is now “moot” because the two male-born “transgender girls” whose “participation in girls’ track provided the impetus for this action” have since graduated.
