ACLU and Equality North Carolina v. Governor Pat McCrory —H.B. 2 (USA)

On March 28, three transgender residents of North Carolina, along with the ACLU and Equality North Carolina, filed a lawsuit against NC Governor Pat McCrory, NC Attorney General Roy Cooper III, the University of North Carolina and its board members in a complaint seeking to challenge “a sweeping North Carolina, House Bill 2 (“H.B. 2”), which bans transgender people from accessing restrooms and other facilities consistent with their gender identity and blocks local governments from protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (“LGBT”) people against discrimination in a wide range of settings.”  Legal action is currently on hold pending a ruling in G.G vs. Gloucester County School Board before the U.S. Supreme Court.  However, the Defendants have filed a request for “access for up to 10 years’ worth of records for the plaintiffs and their witnesses” and “…have cited controversial scientific studies that claim someone describing themselves as transgender is likely experiencing a mental disorder in which their gender identity could fluctuate from how they feel any given day.”  The Plaintiffs filed a request for a protective order on October 20, claiming “the request constitutes “harassment” and an attempt to intimidate them and potential witnesses.”

  1. ok, stupid question here but are the defendants: NC Governor Pat McCrory, NC Attorney General Roy Cooper III, the University of North Carolina and its board members and are the plaintiffs: three transgender residents of North Carolina, along with the ACLU and Equality North Carolina? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
