Case

Cross v. Loudoun County School Board

Court: Trial Court

Status: Active

Last Updated: 9/24/2021

Overview

Loudoun County Public Schools officials suspended an elementary school teacher for voicing his objections to two proposed school policies during the public comment period of a school board meeting. The policies would force teachers to violate their beliefs by requiring them to address students with their chosen pronouns rather than the ones consistent with their biological sex.  

Two Faculty members, Loudoun County High School history teacher Monica Gill and Smart's Mill Middle School English teacher Kim Wright, are seeking to join the lawsuit, which ADF attorneys originally filed on behalf of Leesburg Elementary School physical education teacher Tanner Cross.
