Supreme Court could take first transgender sports case with appeal from West Virginia soccer player

West Virginia soccer player Lainey Armistead could give the Supreme Court its first shot at issuing a ruling on the controversial subject of transgender athletes in women’s sports.

Armistead and her lawyers from the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to weigh in on her case against the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). That group is trying to strike down West Virginia’s Save Women’s Sports Act, which bans male student athletes who identify and present themselves as female from playing on girls’ school sports teams.

When the state law was passed in 2021, it was immediately met with a lawsuit from the ACLU, which represented Becky Pepper-Jackson, a transgender middle school student who was barred from joining the girl’s cross-country team.
