N.C., federal government sue each other over transgender bathroom law

Mary Orndorff Troyan, USA TODAY Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – The battle over transgender rights expanded dramatically Monday when North Carolina and the federal government sued each other over a new state law that requires people to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender at birth.

Hours after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory accused the federal government of wrongly applying federal civil rights laws to transgender people, the Justice Department sued North Carolina for what it called "state-sponsored discrimination" against the transgender community.

The sharply worded exchanges between McCrory and Attorney General Loretta Lynch escalated the legal fight over the rights of people who no longer identify with their birth gender.

Federal officials allege McCrory’s willingness to enforce his state's restroom law, known as House Bill (HB) 2, “constitutes a pattern or practice of employment discrimination on the basis of sex” in violation of the federal civil rights law. Lynch, saying North Carolina is her home state, compared the state's actions to historic resistance to desegregation.

"This is a time to summon our national virtues of inclusivity, diversity, compassion and open-mindedness," she said.

North Carolina's "compliance with and implementation of HB2 stigmatizes and singles out transgender employees, results in their isolation and exclusion, and perpetuates a sense that they are not worthy of equal treatment and respect,” the Justice Department's lawsuit says.

The suit was filed in the Middle District of North Carolina; McCrory’s case was filed in the Eastern District.
