Transgender kids can play women’s sports in Utah after ruling | National

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Transgender girls in Utah will be allowed to participate in girls’ sports starting the school year after a judge on Friday lifted the ban pending legal challenges from their parents.

Instead of an outright ban, transsexual girls will now be referred to a commission that will determine on a case-by-case basis if their participation jeopardizes justice. Republican Utah lawmakers created the commission under a law passed earlier this year as a backup plan to implement in the event of a court injunction against the law.
