A mother in Oklahoma has filed a lawsuit against Edmond Public Schools after her teenage daughter was allegedly severely beaten by a transgender student in the girls’ bathroom.
The incident, which took place at Edmond Memorial High School on October 26, 2022, allegedly involved a 15-year-old girl, referred to as “E.G.,” being severely beaten by a 17-year-old transgender student.
The lawsuit, filed last Thursday by Theresa Gooden, claims that the accused attacker, assigned male at birth, used the girls’ restroom in violation of a state law signed in May 2022. The law stipulates that public school students must use restrooms corresponding to the sex stated on their birth certificates.
Students who identify as transgender but choose not to comply with the policy are required by a law signed by Governor Kevin Stitt to use a “single-occupancy restroom or changing room.”
According to the legal document obtained by The New York Post, the incident left the young girl with “severe physical and mental injuries, severe physical and mental pain and suffering, and severe emotional distress.”
