Ten States Filed A Complaint Against Protections For Transgender People

Written by

A new trial was initiated by a dozen states against the Obama administration and its commitment to protect transgender people.

This complaint echoes another complaint filed last May by Texas with some other states.

Here it is Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina and Wyoming.

They especially focus on the protection of trans students in stating that they did not need more protection because current federal laws allow them access to the restrooms corresponding to their gender identity.

However, in this complaint, are clearly named the Education, Justice and Labor departments as well as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The complainants claimed compensation to those agencies which have transgender-inclusion policies.

They also argue that the Obama administration's policies were not implemented properly and were not complied with the Administrative Procedure Act.

In these states, this complaint is lodged by the attorneys general.
