Court Delays Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Rule for Public Schools

From the College Fix:

A federal judge in Texas halted the Title IX guidance issued by the departments of Justice and Education this spring that said schools must let students use the sex-segregated facilities of their choice – in particular, restrooms and locker rooms – in line with their gender identities.

Judge Reed O’Connor said the government had violated the APA’s notice-and-comment procedures, which is also at issue in litigation around the Department of Education’s five-year-old guidance on campus sexual misconduct procedures.

The 13 states suing the government have standing because their “conduct” is the target of the government’s action, O’Connor ruled.
