FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2018 file photo, the U.S. Supreme Court is seen at near sunset in Washington.

So does the appeals court ruling in favor of Stephens that held that workplace discrimination against transgender people is illegal under federal civil rights law. But in more than 110 pages urging the Supreme Court to reverse that decision, the Trump administration and the funeral home where Stephens worked avoid those gender pronouns.
