This activity is approved for 1.0 hours of general MCLE credit for California Attorneys. FREE for members.
In Adams v. School Board of St. Johns County, Florida, the Eleventh Circuit decided that Drew Adams had a right to the boys’ restroom at his high school. That circuit joins others, which have found that discrimination in access to restrooms and locker rooms at school violates Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. The presenter, Dimitri Portnoi, will review the decision, the state of transgender student access across the country, and discuss the particularly virulent offensive dissent by the Chief Judge of the Eleventh Circuit.
Dimitri Portnoi is an experienced attorney experienced in litigating issues of civil rights, constitutional law, and appellate issues. He is a veteran of multiple civil rights battles relevant to the LGBTQ+ community, including the challenges to Nevada’s discriminatory same-sex marriage law, the anti-transgender laws of multiple states, and laws restricting reproductive rights. A sample of the organizations Dimitri has represented or partnered with include Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and many others. Outside of his pro bono representations, Dimitri has a diverse practice representing and counseling clients in complex trial and appellate litigation, First Amendment and other constitutional issues, and appellate litigation.
