A federal judge is holding off on making a decision on the issue involving transgender students in the northwest suburbs.

Last year, a transgender student in District 211 based in Palatine complained she was denied access to the women's locker rooms and bathrooms.

That led to a settlement with the student that granted her access.

But some families are fighting the decision.

Both sides argued their case in court today.

The district added a handful of privacy stalls in changing rooms.  But the district and attorneys for transgender students say few are using them.

The judge said he will issue a report at a later date.
