FACT Joins Friend-of-the-Court Brief Concerning Title IX and Schools

FACT was pleased to join 18 other family policy councils on an amicus (friend-of-the-court) brief in the Kenosha v. Whitaker “transgender” student bathroom case. The family policy councils are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the 7th Circuit’s terrible decision to redefine “sex” in Title IX that applies to bathrooms and locker rooms in our schools.

While the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision is not binding on the states in the 6th Circuit, such as Tennessee, it would be used and will be used by opponents of privacy and biologically based sex determinations as persuasive authority.

Seventh Circuit Rewrites the Civil Rights Act

Congress, responsible for writing laws for the country, has repeatedly denied efforts to add sexual orientation to the list of protected classes under the Civil Rights Act. Despite the original intent of the Congress of 1964 and the will of the modern Congress to not expand the classes in the Civil Rights Act, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to interpret “sex” to encompass sexual orientation by “judicial interpretive updating,” according to Judge Richard Posner. If you remember, Judge Posner recently declared there was “absolutely no value” in studying the U.S. Constitution because “eighteenth-century guys” couldn’t have possibly foreseen the culture and technology of today. The case will most likely be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
