NC Governor Files Suit Against Government Over HB2

Quote:
Gov. McCrory files lawsuit against federal government over HB2 l - | WBTV Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has filed a lawsuit against the federal government after the United States Department of Justice challenged House Bill 2 last week.

The lawsuit, filed Monday morning, names the federal government, United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta.

The Department of Justice sent a letter to McCrory last week saying North Carolina’s House Bill 2 violates federal civil rights laws.

The Justice Department said state officials must confirm by Monday that they will not comply with or implement the law called House Bill 2, according to a copy of the letter obtained by WBTV.

The DOJ said it also sent similar letters to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS) and the University of North Carolina.

NCDPS Secretary Frank Perry is named as a co-plaintiff in Monday's lawsuit.

WBTV will gather more information on the case.
The suit wasn't brought by the states Attorney General, but a private lawsuit. I a statement, the governor says that Title 9 protections don't extend to transgendered people, and that only Congress can decide if that's the laws meaning.

i.e. We're looking for conservatives in Congress to have our backs, and we're going to play their game, and ignore the DOJ , you know, because Obama.

I thought it was the SC's responsibility to decide what laws mean.

It is. There are two major problems with the suit. They won't get a favorable ruling from the 4th District in Va., and there are currently 8 Justices on the SC.

The DOJ should now without hesitation immediately revoke all federal funding to the state in the most public way possible. Preferrably by AG Loretta Lynch on national television, breaking in on regular programming.
