ACLU, North Carolina governor reach agreement in transgender bathroom lawsuit

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - Transgender people would be allowed to use public restrooms in North Carolina that match their gender identity under a settlement agreement filed on Wednesday that aims to resolve the federal lawsuit over the state’s widely criticized bathroom law.

The consent decree proposed by Governor Roy Cooper, the American Civil Liberties Union and transgender people who sued the state would remove some of the law’s harmful effects, civil rights groups said.

The judge in the case must sign off on the proposal before it takes effect.

A measure passed in March helped bring back some business and sports events pulled from the state in protest in the year after it enacted the so-called bathroom bill known as HB 2. But activists said transgender people still faced discrimination and threats to their safety under the new law.
