U.S. Supreme Court refuses two LGBT cases

U.S. Supreme Court refuses two LGBT cases.

Advocate reports:
On Monday, the first day of its new session, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear two LGBT-related cases.

The first case involved an appeal by a Michigan school district to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the parents of a student who endured years of antigay harassment without school intervention, reports Bay Windows.

The Supreme Court also refused Monday to get involved in a dispute between breakaway Episcopalians and their former national church over who owns a California church and its property.
