The Justice Department on Friday dropped its lawsuit accusing North Carolina of discrimination against transgender people following the state’s repeal of its controversial “bathroom bill.”
The move, overseen by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, reverses action taken by his predecessor Loretta Lynch.
Lawyers for North Carolina and DOJ filed a joint notice to dismiss the lawsuit, citing recently adopted legislation that rolled back the controversial law. The agreement comes after Republican lawmakers and Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper agreed last month on a compromise that replaced House Bill 2 (HB2), which regulated access to public restrooms and locker rooms on the basis of biological sex.
