The Loudoun County School Board has agreed to a permanent injunction prohibiting it from retaliating against Leesburg Elementary School teacher Tanner Cross, the teacher who got suspended for speaking out against the pro-transgender Policy 8040. The school board settled Cross’s lawsuit by agreeing not to take further action against him, but Cross and other teachers are still challenging 8040 in court.
“Just today, the court issued a final order permanently prohibiting the Loudoun County Public School Board from punishing me for freely expressing my views,” Cross said at a news conference after the settlement on Monday. “I can now confidently continue teaching at Leesburg Elementary School without fear of punishment for expressing my views.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Policy 8040 requires school staff to refer to students by their preferred pronouns, to open activities to students according to their gender identity, to allow students access to facilities corresponding to gender identity, and to complete training on topics related to LGBTQ+ students.
The settlement requires the school “to remove any reference to Cross’s suspension in his record, to abide by an injunction preventing them from retaliating against Cross for his speech against 8040 and to pay $20,000 in legal fees,” the report explains.
Cross spoke out during a May 25 school board meeting, saying he will not “affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa” as would be required if the district adopts proposed Policy 8040.
In his 1-minute declaration before the school board, Cross said, “I love all of my students but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I’m a teacher but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God.”
Cross was suspended by the school over his remarks, which prompted his lawsuit.
