Judge Maintains Nationwide Injunction Against Obama Transgender 'Directive'

In May of this year, Barack Obama's Education Department wrote a "friendly letter" (also known as immutable supreme law according to Our Dear Leader Ryan McElveen) to school systems across America demanding that they open up restrooms, locker rooms, and shower facilities to anyone regardless of biological sex, as long as they "identify" as the gender that the facility serves. 13 states sued the federal government, and a judge granted a preliminary, nationwide injunction preventing any attempts at enforcement of this letter. Yesterday, a federal judge upheld and extended the injunction.

Ryan McElveen is looking pretty silly right now ... after all, he was the one who claimed that a letter from DOE bureaucrats is "law" that "required" FCPS to adopt a transgender policy.

From Politico:

A federal judge in Texas has largely rejected the Obama administration's request to narrow a nationwide injunction banning enforcement of an Education Department policy requiring public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding to their gender identity.
In an order issued late Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Reed O'Connor made some changes to the ruling he issued in August at the request of 13 states opposed to the policy, but he left the Education Department unable to bring new cases enforcing transgender students' access to access to what he termed "intimate facilities" across the nation.
Justice Department lawyers had asked O'Connor to limit the injunction's effect to the 13 states who brought the suit, filed in federal court in Wichita Falls, Texas, about 140 miles northwest of Dallas. However, the judge maintained he had the legal authority to halt the policy nationwide.
