SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is filing an amicus briefin the Cincinnati-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to stop what he says is the Biden Administration’s relentless pursuit of new so-called sexual orientation and gender identity policies.
Attorney General Paxton says he had successfully sued to stop the implementation of two related Biden Administration rules, including one by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) requiring employers to enact rules governing bathroom, locker room, and shower usage, as well as dress codes and pronoun usage to be predicated on “gender identity” as opposed to biological sex. The federal government acknowledged defeat when it opted not to appeal the ruling.
