The case of former Clayton County child welfare official Gerald Lynn Bostock is among three the Supreme Court is set to examine. The U.S. Supreme Court will consider a metro-Atlanta case as it weighs whether gay, lesbian and transgender workers are protected under federal anti-discrimination laws. In what could be a landmark ruling, the high court will decide whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends workplace protections to members of the LGBT community.
