Feds Can’t Make Louisiana Let Boys in Girls Bathrooms
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has joined with 19 other states' attorneys general in suing the Biden Administration from enforcing their new, expansive and unlawful guidance of federal 'antidiscrimination' legislation. Count one for the good guys.
A federal judge in the US Disctrict Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee has enjoined the Biden Administration from enforcing the new, restrictive federal antidiscrimination laws.
“I am proud to have helped thwart yet another of Joe Biden’s radical overreaches,” said Attorney General Landry. “Redefining sex is Biden’s latest attempt to force states to comply with his woke agenda; fortunately, the court agreed with us and the rule of law.”
Joining Louisiana in the law suit were Tennessee, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia.
The lawsuit was an effort to stop Biden's Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission from their attempts to force schools to allow biological males to compete in girls athletic events on girls teams... as girls... and to prohibit sex-separated showers, restrooms and locker rooms, and to force individuals to use biologically incaccurate 'preferred' pronouns.
“The District Court rightly recognized the federal government put Tennessee and other states in an impossible situation: choose between the threat of legal consequences including the withholding of federal funding- or altering our state laws to comply. Keep in mind these new, transformative rules were made without you- without your elected leaders in Congress having a say, which is what the law requires,” said Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery who led the lawsuit. “We are thankful the Court put a stop to it, maintained the status quo as the lawsuit proceeds, and reminded the federal government it cannot direct it’s agencies to rewrite the law.”
