In response to PLF suit, South Dakota will let boys dance
Sioux Falls, South Dakota; May 8, 2018: Last month, Pacific Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit challenging the South Dakota High School Athletic Association’s unconstitutional rule that kept boys from participating in competitive dance. Today, SDHSAA announced that they would suspend the rule. PLF attorney Caleb Trotter released the following statement about the decision:
“Today, the Association did the right thing and voted to suspend the discriminatory rule for the upcoming school year. As a result, our client, Freddie Linden, will be able to dance this fall. We commend the Association for its quick action in changing the rule before school lets out for the summer. In the coming months, the Association will consider making a permanent change to the rule, and we are hopeful that the Association will permanently remove the rule and just let the boys dance. As for our lawsuit, the legal team is currently weighing all of its options moving forward.”
