North Carolina has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department to defend House Bill 2, a law that bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond with their biological sex, according to a court document.

The move is in response to a letter the Justice Department sent last week warning Gov. Pat McCrory that the law is in violation other Civil Rights Act and giving him until Monday to "remedy the situation."
 
The state's lawsuit calls the Justice Department's position a "radical reinterpretation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act" and "a baseless and blatant overreach."

  1. While I'm glad Gov. McRory is not rolling over for the Feds, I fear once again that we will see proof of the futility in relying on Federal courts to determine the limits of Federal power. They're as biased a referee as you will ever see. Deo vindice.

  3. My suggestion for North Carolina is to take the Federal Justice Department and to strangle it at the neck until it is no longer breathing.

    Actually North Carolina has a good case. Rawls at Survivalblog had a small piece on Interposition doctrine at the end of todays post. Its under Jims quote of the day and well worth reading.
