(Before It's News)

The U.S. Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would not decide on the case of a transgender boy who sought access to the boys’ bathroom at zer high school.

With just eight Justices on the Supreme Court and a ninth pending confirmation, it could be months or years before the court takes up the issue.

With the political leanings of the court sure to shift to the right under President Trump, and political battles over transgender rights raging across the country, the issue will certainly make its way back to the court in due time.

Monday’s development was a setback for transgender rights advocates, who had hoped the Supreme Court, which established a constitutional right to same-sex marriage two years ago, would aid their cause.

Instead, in a one-sentence order on Monday, the Supreme Court vacated an appeals court decision in favor of the student, Gavin Grimm, and sent the case back for further consideration in light of the new guidance from the administration.

The Supreme Court had agreed in October to hear the case, and the justices were scheduled to hear arguments this month. The case would have been the court’s first encounter with transgender rights, and it would probably have been one of the biggest decisions of a fairly sleepy term. (New York Times)
