NC files lawsuit challenging US Justice Dept. attack of HB2, Governor Pat McCrory this is no longer just a North Carolina issue, It’s the federal government being a bully, Congress does not define sex as something that can be chosen
“Any biological man – regardless of whether he “identifies” or “expresses” himself as a man OR as a woman – now has the legal right under the City’s amended ordinance to access the most intimate of women’s facilities (and vice versa). Under the ordinance, Charlotte businesses may no longer offer or enforce sex-specific facilities and face penalties if they do.”…NC House Member Dan Bishop

“North Carolina sues U.S. Justice Department in defense of HB2
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 was in violation of the 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.”
It’s deadline day for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory.
The U.S. Justice Department sent his office a letter Wednesday claiming that the state’s bathroom law is in violation of the Civil Rights Act.
They gave the Republican leader until the end of the business day Monday to respond with a solution to “remedy the situation.”
The law bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond to their biological sex.
McCrory says what he chooses to do at that deadline goes beyond the Tar Heel state — it will affect the majority of Americans.
“This is no longer just a North Carolina issue,” he said in a Fox News interview on Sunday. “This is a basic change of norms that we’ve used for decades throughout the United States of America and the Obama administration is now trying to change that norm — again not just in North Carolina, but they’re ordering this to every company in the United States of America — starting tomorrow I assume, or Tuesday.””
“”This unrealistic deadline by the federal government is quite amazing,” he said in his Fox News interview. “It’s the federal government being a bully.”
McCrory also points to the fact that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act uses the term “sex” when it comes to gender issues, and “Congress does not define sex” as something that can be chosen.
“The Justice Department is making law for the federal government as opposed to enforcing it,” McCrory said.”
God bless and protect Governor McCrory.
