At least temporary, but the staff and the students of the North Carolina University won a right not to follow a scandalous HB2 law according to which transgender people are not allowed to use bathroom facilities according to their gender identity.
US District Judge Thomas Schroeder granted a partial preliminary injuction to the plaintiffs in the case. While the judge limited the injunction to the three people, he said he belives their claim against the state’s HB2 law would be a success. The students and staff member want to argue that HB2 violates the anti-discrimination Title IX law. The decision is hailed as a victory of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the US Justice Department, both of which have sued over the law. Judge Schroeder’s final decision on the law will come in a November trial.
