(KMOV) A family is fighting their school district in court. The family believes the school district is discriminating against their transgender 6 year old. The child was born a boy, but has been living as a girl for several years.

All was apparenlty fine, until Coy Mathis began first grade at Eagleside Elementary in Colorado. In the middle of the school year, her parents got a letter informing them that some parents and students are likely to be uncomfortable with Coy using the girl's restroom.

Now, the family is waiting for the court top decide what action to take next.
