Liberty Counsel Sues Virginia School for Illegal Action

Liberty Counsel has filed suit against the Fairfax County School Board for illegally changing its non-discrimination policy which now is in conflict with the state’s policy.

Virginia law explicitly prohibits local governing bodies from deviating from the state’s non-discrimination policy. In direct defiance of the law, Fairfax added new categories to the policy twice.

Liberty Counsel asked the school board to resolve outside of the court and now we are asking for a declaratory judgement and injunction to stop this improper policy. This school added sexual orientation and gender identity to the policy. It will have devastating effects and it’s unlawful.
