North Carolina Is Sued Over 'Anti-LGBTQ' Law
North Carolina's new legislation prevents local governments from passing anti-discrimination rules.By Jamal Andress | March 28, 2016
The North Carolina law that keeps transgender folk from using the bathroom they want now has a challenge in a court of law.
The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, Equality North Carolina and three individuals have filed a federal lawsuit to challenge what many call anti-LGBTQ legislation in North Carolina.
The newly passed law requires transgender people to use bathrooms assigned to their biological sex at schools or government agencies. It also blocks local governments from passing anti-discrimination rules.
