Parents Protecting Our Children v. Eau Claire Area School District, Wisconsin — Amicus Brief Supporting Petition for Certiorari

Jeremiah Morgan Constitutional Law, U. S. Supreme Court

Today, our firm filed an amicus brief in support of a petition for certiorari filed by a coalition of parents of schoolchildren in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The parents are challenging a policy of the school district to assist children with sexual transitioning without telling the parents of those children. The lower courts dismissed the claims, concluding that the parents did not have standing to challenge the school policy. Our amicus brief discussed how this issue is spreading across the nation and how transgenderism is associated with the ancient religion of paganism. We argued that the parents do have standing because their informational rights are being violated, but courts are abdicating their responsibility to take cases using the doctrine of standing to avoid difficult issues. We also explain that parents should not be forced to choose between giving up their rights by putting their children in government schools and withdrawing their children from those schools.
