Attorney General Signals Pullback From Obama Initiative on Transgender Bathrooms
The Wall Street Journal and other publications reports:
Newly instated U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has shown an early sign of backing away from an Obama administration initiative that directs schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the sex with which they identify.
ABA JOURNAL REPORTS:
A day after Jeff Sessions was sworn in as U.S. attorney general, the Justice Department indicated possible disagreement with the Obama administration's directive telling public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.
In a court filing on Friday, the Justice Department withdrew an objection to a judge's nationwide injunction blocking the government from enforcing the directive, report the Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press and the New York Times.
