Idaho Ed News By Kevin Richert on December 22, 2020

From across the nation — and from a wide variety of viewpoints — opponents urged a federal court to strike down Idaho’s ban on transgender athletes. On Monday, attorneys filed 10 separate briefs opposing Idaho’s first-in-the-nation transgender athletics law, now before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The one-day flurry of filings — known in legal lexicon as “amicus curiae” or “friend of the court” briefs — ramps up the simmering national debate over the Idaho law. Dubbed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act by its supporters, Idaho’s law would prohibit transgender women and girls from playing in women’s and girls’ sports.
