Judge Bans Biden’s Transgender Bathroom Law

Objectivity 3.6 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

A federal judge blocked a directive from the Biden administration, allowing transgender workers and students to use school restrooms matching their gender preferences.  It also allowed transgender athletes to join sports teams corresponding with their chosen genders.  The directive was blocked by Judge Charles Atchley Jr. of the Eastern District of Tennessee, a Trump appointee, after a coalition of 20 Republican attorneys general sued last year.  The lawsuit argued the federal directive clashed with state laws and prevented states from enforcing their own laws that banned transgender school bathroom use.
