The Obama administration is suing the state of North Carolina over its so-called bathroom bill, saying it breaks federal anti-discrimination laws.
The law requires transgender people to use bathrooms that correspond to their sex at birth instead of the gender with which they identify.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday called the North Carolina law “state-sponsored discrimination” that reminds her of a time when blacks were barred from public facilities and states could dictate who was allowed to marry.
The federal government has named the state, its Republican Governor Pat McCrory, the Department of Public Safety, and the University of North Carolina — which receives millions in federal funds — in the lawsuit.
