NC GOP Leader Promises No Action on Anti-Gay Marriage Bill

Protests Over LGBT Rights in North Carolina

Senate Bill 6 stalled after several key House leaders, including Speaker Joe Straus, signaled that they had no intention of supporting it. The Fourth Circuit, which covers North and SC, has not examined this question recently, which seems headed for debate and final resolution at the United States Supreme Court. That proposal would bar cities from enacting measures to bar discrimination against transgender people in restrooms and prohibit transgender people from using the restroom consistent with their gender identity in public spaces, such as schools and government buildings.

North Carolina Republican's proposed bill to deny same-sex marriage in complete defiance of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling is dead on arrival.

An Indiana teacher who's the plaintiff in the case in which a federal appeals court in Chicago ruled the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination says she filed her lawsuit. The new law, signed by current governor Roy Cooper, retains the ban on local non-discrimination ordinances and puts control over bathroom access in the hands of state legislators. The lawsuit was filed in May 2016 by deputies working for President Barack Obama.

"The Trump Administration may want to use the fake repeal of H.B". The college sports giant had already moved some games because of HB2 and was threatening to move more if the law was not changed.

"All three of these districts are solidly Republican so that they're able to play a little and get national media coverage and to say essentially "We don't like the direction the state is going", Cooper said.

But as large cities and states across the nation reaffirmed their travel bans to North Carolina to take stands against LGBT discrimination, questions remain about the effect of the compromise law adopted in HB2's place.

In a two-sentence court filing, the Justice Department said it had dropped its lawsuit, filed previous year by the Obama administration, because the North Carolina legislature had replaced it with a new law called House Bill 142.

The U.S. Department of Justice will no longer battle with the state of North Carolina over its policies regarding transgender residents.

That pro-transgender hostility towards biological heterosexuality is deeply unpopular among Americans, who prefer that civic society help women and men cooperate to ensure the next generation is birthed and educated.

Tara Borelli, a lawyer for Lambda Legal, said her group will update its lawsuit challenging HB142, arguing that it's just as discriminatory as HB2.

The bans have stayed in place after passage of a compromise law that repeals HB2 but bars cities from enacting anti-discrimination ordinances for four years. "We don't think the courts will have any trouble seeing that, regardless of who's sitting at counsel's table".

Jon W. Davidson, legal director at Lambda Legal, said in a statement that the Trump administration and Sessions were using the "fake repeal of HB2 as cover" to withdraw the government's support for transgender people.
