Trump administration backs Idaho transgender sports ban

Published Fri Jun 19 2020 20:50:59 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The Trump administration is supporting Idaho's new law banning transgender women from competing in women’s sports. It's the first law of its kind in the nation and the U.S. Department of Justice backed it in a court filing Friday. Department lawyers say a federal court considering a challenge to the ban should conclude the law complies with the U.S. Constitution. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Legal Voice group filed a lawsuit in April saying the law is discriminatory and an invasion of privacy. They also say the ban set to start July 1 violates a landmark 1972 U.S. law banning sex discrimination in education.
