It’s been quite a day. In the morning, the state of North Carolina filed a lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgment that sex discrimination law can’t possibly cover gender identity discrimination. In the afternoon, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgment that sex discrimination law clearly covers gender identity discrimination. The comments by Attorney General Loretta Lynch announcing the lawsuit were incredible and well-worth listening to. So were the comments by AAG Vanita Gupta — a true heroine in this fight. I clearly need to update the short piece I wrote just a few weeks ago explaining why the North Carolina law violates federal sex discrimination law. That’s actually a delightful prospect.
