The legal battle over transgender bathroom rights is extending way past North Carolina. Several states filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration for its guidelines on accommodating transgender students in schools.
Georgia, Utah, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Texas and Tennessee along with the Arizona Department of Education and Maine Gov. Paul LePage are listed as plaintiffs.
The lawsuit says the Obama administration "conspired to turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children."
