Juliet Evancho, the sister of a performer at President Donald Trump's inauguration, must be allowed to use school bathrooms that correspond with her gender, a Pennsylvania judge ruled Monday. Evancho and two other transgender classmates at Pennsylvania's Pine-Richland High School were allowed to use school bathrooms that matched their gender identity until last year, when a classmate's parent reportedly complained to the school. The students were then made to use bathrooms corresponding with the sex listed on their birth certificate. A U.S. District Court judge ruled that the school's bathroom policy infringed on the students' constitutional rights to equal protection. "The Plaintiffs have shown a reasonable likelihood of success on the merits of their claim that the District’s enforcement of Resolution 2 as to their use of common school restrooms does not afford them equal protection of the law as guaranteed to them by the Fourteenth Amendment," Judge Mark Hornak wrote. The ruling follows Trump's decision last week to remove a policy that required schools to allow students to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity. Evancho expressed interest in meeting with Trump to discuss his policies for transgender people.
