A federal district court judge today ruled in favor of three Lambda Legal clients – transgender students at Pine-Richland High School – and ordered the suburban Pittsburgh school district to allow the students to use the bathroom that matches who they are.
The American Civil Liberties Union and Lambda Legal, groups that are representing LGBT North Carolinians in a federal lawsuit challenging House Bill 2, say they oppose a new proposal to repeal the law because it still enables discrimination against LGBT people.
Today, the U.S. Department of Education rescinded the Obama administration’s 2016 Title IX guidance clarifying the rights of transgender students. This could endanger the well-being and safety of children across the country.
The ruling is a victory for Lambda Legal and South Carolina Equality clients Casy and Jacqueline Carson, a married lesbian couple, and their twins, who were issued birth certificates listing only Jacquie, and treating Casy like a legal stranger to her own children.
