Religious v LGBTQ Rights: Supreme Court Refuses To Take Up Catholic Hospital Appeal Against Trans Man

The Supreme Court on Monday turned down an appeal from a Catholic hospital in California that was sued after refusing to perform a hysterectomy for a transgender man. The court's denial, issued without comment, sends the lawsuit back to state court for further proceedings against the hospital and avoids, for now, the issue of when claims of religious freedom can trump anti-discrimination laws. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch said the court should have taken the case.
