Trump Admin Sued Over LGBTQ Patient Protections

Politico reports:

A coalition of advocacy groups sued the Trump administration on Monday over its rollback of LGBTQ patient protections, arguing that last week’s Supreme Court decision extending workplace legal protections to gay and transgender employees invalidates the new rules.

Big picture: The suit marks the first challenge stemming from the 6-3 high court decision that anti-discrimination protections based on sex also apply to a person’s gender identity and sexual orientation.

The decision authored by Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch is expected to have ramifications for LGBTQ legal challenges ranging from health care to education.
