The HB2 law, which essentially requires transgender people to use the bathroom according to the way they were born rather than with the gender they identify with, has recently been a controversial topic amongst several sports organizations.

The ruling led to boycotts of the state by some sports teams, businesses, and entertainers.

Republican proponents of HB2 say that the law is needed to protect women by keeping men out of their bathrooms. The court's logic applies equally to all public schools and other places where HB2 conflicts with federal civil rights laws. Today, the tightness that I have felt in my chest every day since H.B. "This was about the law we think is discriminatory toward the transgender community". But Schroeder recognized that North Carolina is bound by an April ruling that found that the Department of Education's own reading of Title IX in favor of trans students is owed deference.

The constitutionality of North Carolina's transgender bathroom law will be put to trial starting in November.

She said that while the ruling only applies to the three plaintiffs, it could embolden North Carolina's public school systems to tailor their restroom access policies to the needs of transgender students.

Lawyers for Republican Governor Pat McCrory and other Republican lawmakers who support the measure said it offered common-sense protection of state residents' privacy and safety, even though it included no specific language for enforcement. During the trial, the court will also consider challenges to sections of H.B.

"In granting the preliminary injunction, the court found that the challengers are likely to succeed in their argument that the law violates Title IX", the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), one of the groups that brought the motion seeking preliminary injunctive relief, wrote Friday. "We're confident that as this case progresses, the plaintiffs will prove that HB2 is illegal, unconstitutional, and should be completely overturned".

A unisex sign and the "We Are Not This" slogan are outside a bathroom at Bull McCabes Irish Pub on May 10, 2016 in Durham, North Carolina.

Much of the legal showdown hinges on whether the DOJ can argue that North Carolina has violated federal law by refusing to accept current, widely held medical standards - that gender identity is separate from biological sex.
