Sutherlin High screen grabA public high school in Oregon is being sued for allegedly violating a male student's privacy.

Pacific Justice Institute is representing the male sophomore at Sutherlin High School, where a transgender female – a female who identifies as male – entered the restroom while the male student was at the urinal.

PJI alleges the high school, aware of the transgender student, provided single-stall restrooms to her and a vice principal confronted her about the incident.

"Because I can," she told him, when asked why she entered the boys' restroom.

PJI is also alleging the school district's superintendent, Terry Prestianni, sent a memo to parents announcing that, in the future, transgender students would be allowed to use the restroom of their choice.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)PJI attorney Brad Dacus tells OneNewsNow that Prestianni and the school district claimed they are following state law when, in fact, state law actually protects the privacy of Oregonians.

"This is just a classic example of activism attempting to push their viewpoint and their ideology," says Dacus, "against the will of the people of Oregon at the expense of young people and their privacy being violated."

PJI filed suit against Sutherlin High School, the superintendent and the school principal, demanding that they immediately rescind the policy.

He predicts that the U.S. Supreme Court will eventually have to decide these kinds of cases – and this could be such a case.

"If they do not reverse their policy," he says, "then we at Pacific Justice Institute will continue this defense in court and as far and as high as necessary to make sure the basic privacy right not to be visually violated is protected."
