10th Circuit upholds transwoman's firing

Indeed, although many courts have ignored Price Waterhouse or found a way around the precedent, other courts in recent years have recognized that its principles could apply in gay and trans cases. Unfortunately for Etsitty, both the lower court and the appellate panel ruled that even if she could make an argument under the sexual stereotyping theory, the Utah Transit Authority had a legitimate and non-discriminatory justification for letting her go.

In other words, had the UTA simply fired her because she was transitioning, her case might have gone to trial. But since her termination revolved around bathrooms, the agency was off the hook.
