Peter Vlaming

Vlaming v. West Point School Board

Court: State Supreme Court

Status: Active

Last Updated: 4/19/2022



High school French teacher Peter Vlaming was fired from his job in West Point, Virginia for declining to refer to a female student with male pronouns even though he consistently accommodated the student by using the student’s preferred name instead of the student’s given name. Vlaming is suing the school board for violating his rights under the Virginia Constitution and Virginia law.

ADF attorneys, along with allied attorney Shawn Voyles, appealed his case to the Virginia Supreme Court after the Circuit Court for the County of King William dismissed the case.
