'Bathroom bill' fight returns to a North Carolina courtroom

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Jun 25, 2018, 5:02 AM ET

Transgender plaintiffs who think the compromise that replaced North Carolina's "bathroom bill" is still discriminatory are heading to court.

A federal judge will hear arguments Monday from lawyers representing Republican legislative leaders who say the case should be dismissed because the plaintiffs can't prove the new law is harming them.

The new law eliminated a requirement that transgender people use restrooms in many public buildings that corresponded to their sex at birth. But it also barred local governments from passing any new nondiscrimination laws until the end of 2020.

The transgender plaintiffs plan to argue the current law continues the harms of its predecessor, commonly called HB2 after its bill number.
