Texas files lawsuit against Biden administration in conservative court over extended rights for LGBTQ+ students

Equality Texas activists protested Senate Bill 14 at the Texas Capitol by dropping a banner reading “let trans kids grow up.” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over expanded federal protections for LGBTQ+ students, claiming the Department of Education overstepped its authority. The lawsuit aims to block changes to Title IX, which prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally-funded schools. The Biden administration defended the new rule, stating it ensures no person experiences sex discrimination in education. The case was assigned to Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, known for issuing nationwide injunctions against federal policies. This comes amid ongoing efforts to strengthen LGBTQ+ protections at the federal level.
