MD Court Will Hear Transgender Law Case

According to Maryland's Daily Record, the state's Court of Appeals has agreed to hear a case involving a petition to have a measure in Montgomery County, Maryland, to have transgender protections stripped from county laws.

After the so-called "Citizens for Responsible Government" claimed they had enough signatures, their petition was challenged by Equality Maryland. Montgomery County Circuit Judge Robert A. Greenberg ruled Equality Maryland missed the deadline to challenge the referendum. Now, the Daily Record says, "The Court of Special Appeals... said it will hear the case Sept. 8, leaving sufficient time to render a decision before Election Day, Nov. 4."
