Justice Department drops North Carolina LGBT rights lawsuit

No More HB2: What Now for North Carolina Employers?

Each party agreed to pay their own costs and attorney fees.

In May 2016, the federal government stepped in, filing a lawsuit that said the bill discriminated against transgender people and violated the federal civil-rights statutes. "This move does not affect the merits of the case", she said.

But House Bill 142, which was adopted three weeks ago, creates a moratorium on local nondiscrimination ordinances through December 1, 2020.

"I don't think the schools are talking about pulling out by any stretch of the imagination", Swofford said.

Kendall Jenner will attend Coachella following Pepsi ad drama
The focus, of course, was that now infamous, now-deleted protest-themed commercial featuring Kendall Jenner. Pepsi also issued an apology, and at the end even apologized to Jenner for putting her "in this position".

The DOJ cited the passage on March 30 of House Bill 142, a purported repeal of HB2 that in fact left numerous harms caused by HB2 in place, as the reason for its withdrawal.

Many who voted for the repeal were not fully satisfied with it but felt pressure from the NCAA.

The state of California announced Wednesday that it would keep its state-funded travel ban to North Carolina.

North Carolina's attempts to get around the Affordable Care Act in 2011 are one notable example, but such attempts also extend to sectors as diverse as agriculture and other civil rights matters. This means public schools, courthouses, and state and local government agencies can not have a policy that allows transgender people to use the right restroom.

Government raises $19.8 billion in airwaves auction
T-Mobile's win is a turnaround from January 2015, when AT&T and Verizon Wireless dominated a $41.3 billion auction. The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday announced the winners of its $19.8 billion spectrum auction.

Former Gov. Pat McCrory, who signed HB2 into law, praised the Trump administration's action in a statement released by the N.C. GOP. Pat McCrory, a Republican who signed HB2 and was ousted from office past year after a campaign in which the law played a major role, said just as much after the new law passed.

The new amendment would stipulate: "Marriages, whether created by common law, contracted, or performed outside of North Carolina, between individuals of the same gender are not valid in North Carolina". The law was spurred by a Charlotte ordinance that allowed transgender people to use the restroom that aligns with their gender identity.

No one is forcing the NCAA to bring post-season basketball back to North Carolina. "It is now a national issue", he said at the time of the lawsuit. The state's HB142 law is being defended in court by a Democratic Attorney General. "This sham 'deal, ' passed without a single LGBTQ person at the table, actually doubles down on discrimination against millions of North Carolinians. What this law does is inflict further indignity on a population that has already suffered far more than its fair share".

The plaintiffs have said not only do they plan to continue seeking damages from the harms of HB2, they plan to amend their lawsuit to encompass HB142. This would apply even to those who are legally married outside the state.
