North Carolina HB2 goes on trial November 14

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder will hear arguments on Monday, August 1, regarding the ACLU's motion for a preliminary injunction. The ACLU's request is limited to the enforcement of the transgender provisions of House Bill 2. During the full trial in November, the ACLU will challenge the sections of HB 2 that prohibit municipalities from extending nondiscrimination protection to LGBT people.

The lawsuit argues that HB 2 is unconstitutional because it violates the Equal Protection and Due Process clauses of the 14th Amendment. The ACLU also contends that the law violates Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by discriminating against students and school employees on the basis of sex.
