The state of North Carolina is filing a lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department over the controversial bathroom bill.
In the 10-page document released on Monday, the state said: "The Department's position is a baseless and blatant overreach. ... The North Carolina law is not discriminatory."
"This is not just a North Carolina issue. This is now a national issue and an issue that imposes new law on every private-sector employer throughout the United States of America with over 15 employees," Gov. Pat McCrory said.
