Lambda Legal, Munger Tolles & Olson LLP, and Alturas Law Group, PLLC filed a federal lawsuit against the Idaho State Superintendent of Education Debbie Critchfield and other Idaho school officials on behalf of a transgender student and an LGBTQ high school student organization challenging Idaho’s new school facilities law that singles out transgender students for discriminatory treatment.  

As of July 1, 2023, Idaho’s discriminatory facilities law, Senate Bill 1100, imposes a sweeping statewide mandate, governing all public and charter schools K-12, that schools must exclude transgender students from multi-user restrooms and other school facilities matching their gender identity. To magnify the law’s chilling effect, it also allows any student to recover a minimum of $5,000 for each instance where they encounter a transgender person using a facility barred by the law.
