The Tennessee Attorney General’s Office has filed a response brief in a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit case, Tennessee v. Department of Education, defending a preliminary injunction issued in federal court protecting 20 states from U.S. Department of Education and EEOC guidance documents that redefine sex discrimination under Title VII and Title IX.

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Knoxville granted a motion for a preliminary injunction to plaintiff Tennessee, et al., and denied a motion to dismiss by the defendant, the U.S. Department of Education. According to a statement released by Johnathan Skrmetti, Tennessee’s attorney general and reporter, “the now-enjoined guidance attempted to force schools to allow biological males to compete on girls’ sports teams, to prohibit sex-separated showers and locker rooms, and to compel individuals to use biologically inaccurate preferred pronouns.”
