The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Christiana Holcomb regarding Thursday’s ruling against student privacy by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit in Doe v. Boyertown Area School District:

“The Supreme Court has already spoken: The real differences between men and women mean that privacy must be protected where it really counts, and that certainly includes high school locker rooms and restrooms. This decision is out of step with longstanding legal protection for privacy. We will continue advocating for these young students.”

The following quote may be attributed to Alexis Lightcap, a student at Boyertown Area Senior High School who is a plaintiff in the lawsuit against the school district:

“Today’s ruling was very disappointing, and made me feel—again—like my voice was not heard. Every student’s privacy should be protected.”
