SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A federal appeals court says a school district near the Oregon state capital can allow transgender students to use locker rooms and bathrooms of the gender they identify with instead of their birth.

Some parents and students at a high school in Dallas, Oregon, had filed the lawsuit in 2017, saying the policy caused embarrassment and stress.

A lower court had previously ruled the school policy was permissible. That decision was affirmed Wednesday by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Similar lawsuits have been dismissed by courts in other parts of the country.
