VIRGINIA: Liberty Counsel Loses Battle To Overturn School District’s LGBT Nondiscrimination Policies

And yet another big loss for the Liberty Counsel. Via the Washington Blade:

A Virginia judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit against the Fairfax County School District’s nondiscrimination policy that includes sexual orientation and gender identity.

FCPS Pride, a group that represents LGBT employees of the Fairfax County School District, welcomed the decision from the Fairfax County Circuit Court.

“Our nondiscrimination policies are safe,” wrote FCPS Pride on its Facebook page.

The Liberty Counsel in December filed a lawsuit against the policy on behalf of Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty and an unnamed minor. His parents and two of their friends are also named in the complaint.

The lawsuit alleges that members of the Fairfax County School Board violated Virginia law when they added sexual orientation and gender identity to the district’s nondiscrimination policy in November 2014 and May 2015.

Liberty Counsel has vowed to appeal. Their suit was brought on behalf of hate group leader Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition. The Fairfax County School District has been under attack by Christianists for quite some time. (Tipped by JMG reader ColdCountry)AndreaLafferty
