ADF challenges lawless federal actions that could force women, girls ADF challenges lawless federal actions that could force women, to share locker rooms with men nationwide
RALEIGH, N.C. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing students and parents at North Carolina public schools and universities filed suit Tuesday against the U.S. departments of Justice and Education for making federal student aid and educational funding dependent on students sharing restrooms and locker rooms with the opposite sex. The suit is similar to one ADF filed against the two agencies on behalf of parents and students in Illinois last week.
The DOJ disregarded student privacy and safety when it issued letters threatening the suspension of federal funding for North Carolina's schools and university system, as well as federal financial aid for North Carolina's university students, unless the state government repudiated the law known as House Bill 2. That law ensures that government facilities and public schools protect personal privacy by maintaining sex-specific restrooms, locker rooms, and showers. The DOJ then filed suit against the state on Monday, the same day that the governor and the General Assembly each sued the agency over its illegitimate demands.
