Two Utah families filed a legal challenge on May 31 against a state bill banning transgender girls from competing in girls high school sports, known as House Bill 11.

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed the bill in March 2022, but the Legislature managed to override the governor’s veto. His letter to the Legislature’s leaders noted that of the 75,000 high school students participating in high school sports in Utah, four are transgender students playing high school sports while one plays girls’ sports.
