Glenn v. Brumby et. al. | Lambda Legal
The American Civil Liberties Union and advocacy groups filed a federal lawsuit today in response to a controversial North Carolina law that opponents say discriminates against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. The law, approved last week by the state legislature and signed by Gov. Pat McCrory, bans people from using bathrooms that don't match the sex indicated on their birth certificate. It also prevents North Carolina cities and counties from establishing ordinances that extend protections covering sexual orientation and gender identity to restaurants, hotels and stores. A push by Republican leaders in the North Carolina General Assembly helped pass the law in an attempt to overturn a measure the city of Charlotte implemented last month that allowed transgender people to use the restroom aligned with their gender identity.
