North Carolina’s law cannot be used to deny transgender people entry to public restrooms according to the court ruling from September 30. US District Judge Thomas Schroeder ruled that there is nothing in the language of the law that would not allow transgender people use the bathrooms in correspondence with their gender identity.North Carolina has been a focus point for clashes over transgender rights, with Democratic Governor Roy Cooper signing a law, HB 142, restricting bathroom use in 2017 as part of a compromise with Republicans who had previously passed much stricter and much more discriminatory HB2. The case had been brought by the ACLU and LGBT+ law firm Lambda Legal on behalf of six named plaintiffs. Joaquin Carcaño, lead plaintiff in the lawsuit, said that it is a great relief that there is no law to discriminate against trans people.
