Court Rejects School's Request in Transgender Bathroom Case


GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) — A federal appeals court has denied a Virginia school board's request to allow it to prevent a transgender teen from using the boys' bathroom when he returns to school this September.




The Gloucester County School Board wants to delay an order forcing it to let Gavin Grimm to use the restroom matching his gender identity while it appeals.


The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals denied that request Tuesday.


The appeals court sided in April with Grimm, who argues the board violated discrimination laws by forbidding him from using the boys' bathroom. Grim was a girl who now identifies as a boy.


Judge Paul Niemeyer wrote in a dissenting opinion that allowing Grimm to use the boy's bathroom will deny male students "bodily privacy while using the facilities."

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Investigators have confirmed that the deaths of a teenage girl and two women in a house in one of the nation's wealthiest communities were a murder-suicide.


Rancho Sante Fe


Michael Arya, who owned the home in Rancho Santa Fe, north of San Diego, died of cancer in April. Authorities say his sister stabbed the others before killing herself this week.


San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Kenn Nelson on Friday identified the sister as 52-year-old Sayeh Amini. He says she stabbed to death her 15-year-old niece, Hannah Arya, and her brother's 56-year-old business associate, Ihnwon Mia Shin.


Deputies responding to reported child abuse found the bodies Monday.


Nelson says Amini stabbed herself to death.


He declined to comment further.


Attorney Carl Starrett told reporters that Amini was overwhelmed from handling her brother's estate.
