Even as a high-profile fight continues over a North Carolina law directing transgender people to use bathrooms matching the gender on their birth certificates, a federal appeals court has weighed in on a similar policy in Virginia.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled Tuesday in a 2-to-1 decision that Gavin Grimm, a high school junior, could sue his school board for discrimination because he was banned from using a restroom for boys. This highly watched ruling now raises the question of what it means for North Carolina’s HB2, which covers public school bathrooms. North Carolina is in the 4th Circuit region.
