The Obama administration, which earlier this week had to scramble to get into court after threatening a lawsuit over North Carolina’s law protecting women and children in restrooms, then finding the state already there filing its complaint first, now is being sued by students and parents over its demand that the state have open facilities statewide.
The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, Western Division, was brought by the Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of North Carolinians for Privacy, involving both students and parents.
It cites the demands from the Obama administration that the state allow men who say they are women to use women’s restrooms, locker rooms and shower rooms, and vice versa.
The Obama administration last week had threatened to sue North Carolina over its new law, but then on Monday Attorney General Loretta Lynch had to scramble to get a court case going after finding out that North Carolina officials had beaten her to the punch and already had sued Washington.
Gov. Pat McCrory’s lawsuit contends the Obama administration’s interpretation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act – that Congress intended in that law at that time to provide open restrooms across the nation– not only is a vastly mistaken “overreach” but it also is a “bullying” of the state, which is exercising its constitutional authority to run its own affairs.
The issue arose as part of the Obama administration’s push for normalizing transgenderism across America. One city, Charlotte, adopted a rule requiring that transgenders be allowed to use whatever restroom with which they identity, but the state then stepped in to overrule that, setting a standard across the state.

It provides for protections for women and children in locker rooms that they would not be confronted by a man exposing himself, or something similar in restrooms. It also provides for transgenders, that when they complete their physical reassignment surgery and have their sex changed on their birth certificates, they are to use the restroom that is designated for that sex.
