(FOX NEWS) – One 12-year-old's lawsuit against his school for allegedly violating his First Amendment rights after he was prohibited from wearing a shirt saying, "There are only two genders" hits a speed bump after a district court hearing.
"We were asking for an immediate order so that he could express himself for the rest of the school year," Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) legal counsel Logan Spena told Fox News Digital. "Liam’s suing for the right to do what every other student in his school currently has the right to do, which is respectfully express their own view on a matter of enormous public concern. What is the relationship between sex and gender?"

Attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) filed a federal lawsuit last month against Nichols Middle School (NMS) officials and the town of Middleborough, Massachusetts on behalf of Liam Morrison, a seventh grader who was forbidden to wear a T-shirt to school that reads "There are only two genders."
