Partial win in fight over North Carolina transgender bathroom law (Fri, 26 Aug 2016) WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - North Carolina's university system must allow two transgender students and a transgender employee to use bathrooms matching their gender identity, a
U.S. judge ruled on Friday, in a partial victory for those fighting the state's restrictive restroom law. Most transgender people in North Carolina, however, will still be bound by the law adopted in
March that requires them to use bathrooms in government buildings and public schools that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate. Bathroom access has become a flashpoint in the battle
over transgender rights in the United States.
Relief granted to transgender students fighting North Carolina's bathroom law (Fri, 26 Aug 2016) WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday blocked the University of North Carolina from enforcing a state law requiring transgender people to use single-sex restrooms
and locker rooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate. U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder's order granting a preliminary injunction applies only to the three transgender
plaintiffs named in a lawsuit challenging the measure, known as House Bill 2 or HB 2. North Carolina in March became the first U.S. state to bar people from using restrooms in government buildings
and public schools consistent with their gender identity.
