Loudoun Circuit Court Judge James Plowman has ruled that suspended teacher Tanner Cross must be reinstated to his position as a physical education teacher in a Loudoun county elementary school. He is currently suspended from his position for remarks he made at a Loudoun School Board meeting speaking out against proposed changes in school policy regarding transgender students. Judge Plowman ruled that Cross has a right to free speech and religious freedom.
â€œThe Court finds that the Plaintiffâ€™s speech and religious content are central to the determination made by the Defendants to suspend Plaintiffâ€™s employment. The Court further finds that the weight of the evidence and the totality of the circumstances, clearly show that the four prongs for issuance of temporary injunction have been satisfied,â€ Plowman wrote
