The other nine states included in the lawsuit are Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wyoming. This lawsuit comes after 11 states sued the Obama administration in May over the same rule. North Carolina started the movement suing the federal government first.

Attorney General of Nebraska Doug Peterson explained in a press release that they felt the Department of Education and Justice Department was overstepping established laws and how existing laws are changed. He said, “It also supersedes local school districts’ authority to address student issues on an individualized, professional and private basis.”

The lawsuit focuses on the use of the word “sex” and “gender identity” with the federal law only using the term “sex.” The lawsuit reads, “Neither the text nor the legislative history of Title IX supports an interpretation of the term “sex” as meaning anything other than one’s sex as determined by anatomy and genetics.”

The issue over the restroom rules began when the city Charlotte, North Carolina passed their own ordinance allowing transgender people to use the restroom of their gender identity. The state of North Carolina soon followed with their law that banned such ordinances in the state. The Justice Department declared the law violated the Civil Rights Act and could not be enforced.

Do you think the Department of Education should be allowed to govern all public schools with this new rule? Tell us in the comments below.
