Court Ruling Sides With Female Athletes at Hawaiʻi High School

(AP) — A U.S. appeals court ruling says a judge was wrong to deny class-action status to a group of Hawaiʻi female high school athletes suing over gender discrimination. Their 2018 lawsuit says they were discriminated against because Campbell High School, Hawaiʻi’s largest public high school, didn’t have a girls locker room. They also argued girls at the school had inferior practice and game facilities compared to boys. Attorneys representing the state Department of Education declined to comment. The lawsuit says female athletes at the Ewa Beach school must change in closets, in a nearby Burger King bathroom or on the practice field.
