DOJ Takes Measure to Protect Privacy in Transgender Bathroom Mandate Case

The Department of Justice, under new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has withdrawn a request from the Obama DOJ that would have blocked a federal court injunction against enforcement of Obama’s “guidance letter” purporting to mandate that bathrooms in public schools be designated by feelings rather than biology.

According to Gary McCaleb, senior counsel with the legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, this is “good news for the privacy, safety, and dignity of young students across America.” The injunction now prohibits the ACLU and others from threatening lawsuits against schools based on the “guidance letter.”
