More than a dozen current and former collegiate female athletes filed a lawsuit with a US District Court in Georgia on Thursday, alleging that the NCAA “serially violated Title IX in 2022 by purposefully adopting and amending policies” to allow transgender swimmer Lia Thomas to compete with the UPenn women’s swim team during NCAA competitions. Thomas became the first transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division I title after winning the women’s 500-yard freestyle event in March 2022, as CNN previously reported. The lawsuit, filed against the NCAA and the University System of Georgia, who hosted the 2022 NCAA championships at Georgia Tech, claims the defendants violated Title IX.
