Federal lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina on behalf of Melissa and Meredith Weiss, a married lesbian couple seeking birth certificates listing both mothers as parents of their two sons.
Lambda Legal has submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in support of a transgender police officer in Nevada who was banned from the workplace restroom consistent with his gender identity and mistreated in other ways. The plaintiff is a man who is also transgender. Although assigned female at birth, he has a male gender identity. The employer ultimately lifted its restroom ban after a year, but continues to argue in court that its actions were legal, which would allow other employers to repeat its conduct.
