CCSD Approves Settlement With Trans Former Police Officer

A Nevada school board has approved an $80,000 settlement to end a discrimination case brought by a transgender school police officer.

The Review-Journal reports that the Clark County School Board approved the settlement with former officer Bradley Roberts in a unanimous vote Thursday.

Roberts had sued the district in 2014 for discrimination and harassment after officials barred him from using both the men's and women's restrooms.

A federal judge ruled in October that the district discriminated against Roberts under state and federal laws.

Roberts says he's hopeful his case will prompt the district to adopt protections for transgender students and employees.

Clark County School District spokeswoman Melinda Malone says the district is addressing the matter on an individual basis to meet students' privacy and safety needs.
