US District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled Sunday in favor of Texas and 12 other states, which have sued the federal government over the new rules, meant to create safer environments for transgender students at public school districts and universities. US authorities had issued written guidelines in May, built on existing laws against sexual discrimination, which asked schools to let youths use the bathrooms matching their gender identity rather than the sex on their birth certificate.
