Biden Admin Nailed with Major Lawsuit by 20 States


On the day Joe Biden took office, he issued a policy that demands that men and boys who identify as female be allowed to participate in girls’ and women’s sports and use restrooms and locker rooms designated for women and girls.

This new policy that extends federal sex discrimination protections to student-athletes who identify as transgender.

The policy also reportedly impacts “pronoun usage.”

Now a group of 20 states has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration.

Tennessee attorney general Herbert Slatery is leading the effort.

The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Slatery said, “The guidance purports to resolve highly controversial and localized issues such as whether schools must allow biological males to compete on girls’ sports teams.”

Slatery claims the Dept of Education has failed to follow the Administrative Procedures Act.

“Several Republican-led states, most notably Florida, have enacted legislation banning transgender athletes from participating in women’s and girls’ sports,” the Western Journal reports.

Slatery added, “This case is about two federal agencies changing law, which is Congress’ exclusive prerogative.”

The statement argued that the agencies involved in the decision had no authority to “unilaterally resolve” these issues.

The Tennessee attorney general’s statement also accused the EEOC and DOE of misconstruing the Bostock v. Clayton County Supreme Court decision to justify the changes under Title IX and VII laws.

“All of this, together with the threat of withholding educational funding in the midst of a pandemic, warrants this lawsuit,” Slatery concluded.

Tennessee was joined in the lawsuit by Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia.

The lawsuit names Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, Attorney General Merrick Garland and EEOC Chairwoman Charlotte Burrows among the defendants.

It alleges that Biden’s directive to implement the transgender policies was the result of the administration “unreasonably” interpreting anti-discrimination laws.
