LGBT GROUPS OBJECT TO FEDERAL LAWSUIT THAT SEEKS TO REVERSE TRANS-INCLUSIVE SCHOOL ATHLETIC POLICIES

A new federal lawsuit seeking to challenge trans-inclusive school athletic policies is receiving backlash from LGBT organizations, who view the action as the latest maneuver in a string of public attacks on transgender students. Filed Wednesday in the District of Connecticut on behalf of three cis female high school students, the lawsuit alleges that individual school districts are violating federal civil rights law by requiring the girls to compete with their trans female peers. One of the groups behind the lawsuit, the Alliance Defending Freedom, has drawn scrutiny for its history of pursuing religious liberty cases that often aim to curtail LGBT rights. The alliance is a Christian-aligned professional organization of attorneys that advocates for conservative causes and sponsors training seminars for individuals emerging in the legal profession.
