High Court refuses to hear case against CPS over trans bias

from The Christian Institute:

The High Court has refused to grant a judicial review brought by a 15-year-old girl against the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) over its affiliation with Stonewall.

The schoolgirl, known in legal documents as Miss A, brought the legal action following a previous legal threat in which she argued that the CPS’s hate crime guidance for schools was unlawful.

The CPS withdrew the guidance for review, but the teenager said it could not remain impartial on issues such as the prosecution of transgender ‘hate crimes’ while it remains part of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme.

Schools guidance

The guidance for schools originally made a number of troubling claims.

These included saying it could be a hate crime if a pupil believes they have been excluded from a friendship group because of their sexual orientation, or if a school does not allow a male pupil who says they are transgender to access girls’ changing rooms.

Drawn up by the CPS alongside LGBT activist groups Stonewall and Gendered Intelligence, the guidance said that “rejecting someone” and “not wanting to work with them” were further examples of potential “anti-LGBT+ hate crime or LGBT+ hate incidents”.
