Mayer Brown partner Charles Rothfeld wins unanimous Supreme Court decision
Multiple News Outlets

Charles Rothfeld successfully argued Fitzgerald v. Barnstable School District, winning a unanimous ruling in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that victims of gender discrimination in schools receiving federal funds may bring suit both under federal statutory anti-discrimination law and to enforce their constitutional rights. The case stemmed from a suit filed in Massachusetts alleging that a kindergarten girl was the victim of repeated, vicious sexual harassment on a public school bus, and that school administrators did not take adequate steps in response to the harassment. The ruling was covered in many major publications, including the Associated Press, Bloomberg News, Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, CNN, New York Times, United Press International, USA Today and Washington Post.
