we have new information in a story we first told you about as breaking news last night at 10. in three different stops, police arrested 8 people tied to the standoff in oregon over federal lands. one of those arrests includes ammon bundy. he's been leading a group of ranchers who took over a national wildlife refuge more than three weeks ago. according to cnn, during the arrest, protester lavoy finicum and bundy's brother didn't surrender. shots were fired and finicum died and
6:03 am
right now it's unclear who started the shooting. the bundy ranch released a message on facebook last night saying in part "one of liberty's finest patriots is fallen. he will not go silent into eternity." cnn reports the people arrested face felony charges related to their occupation. the case involving a gloucester high school transgendered teen is inching closer to washington. gavin grimm's battle for the right to use the boy's restroom goes before the u-s appeals court in richmond today, and 10 on your side plans to be there. rico bush joins us now with more details on his fight and what's happening today. rico - don, katie - grimm's attorney's with the a-c-l-u are asking the 4th u-s circuit court of appeals to overturn a norfolk federal judge's ruling, which banned him from using the boy's bathroom. grimm was born a female, but identifies as a male. in september 20-14, gloucester county school board adopted a new policy, which required students
6:04 am
their biology, not gender. grimm said that made him feel uncomfortable, and the a-c-l-u sued on his behalf. they sought a preliminary injunction, which would have allowed him to use the boy's bathroom until a possible trial, but last year a norfolk federal judge ruled against them and sided with the school board. the a-c-l-u filed an appeal and wants to the court to settle the disagreement on bathroom use policies against gender identity. oral arguments are scheduled for later this morning and the a-c-l-u plans to hold a news conference immediately after they leave court. the "bathroom issue" is far from over, even if the court rules in favor of grimm in the coming months. a republican lawmaker in the virginia house of delegates submitted a controversial bill that would require restrooms in schools and public buildings to be used based on biology. anyone caught using the "wrong" restroom could face a fine of 50 dollars. rico bush, 10 on your side.
