Supreme Court to Hear Landmark Cases on LGBTQ+ Rights

AllSides Summary

The Supreme Court of the United States is hearing arguments in a series of landmark cases relating to LGBTQ+ rights and whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act applies to sexual orientation. Appeals courts have been split, with one case ruled in favor of the petitioner and one against. Both men claimed to be fired for being gay. The Trump Administration, reversing the policy of the Obama administration, will argue against Title VII being extended, instead making a case that Congress should clarify Title VII's scope.
