New York can take legal action against county's ban on female transgender athletes, judge says

The Associated Press (4 April 2024)

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) — New York state officials may continue to take legal action against a county outside New York City that has banned transgender players from women's and girls teams, a judge ruled Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge Nusrat Choudhury denied Nassau County's request for a temporary restraining order against state Attorney General Letitia James, saying the Long Island county "falls far short of meeting the high bar for securing the extraordinary relief."

Among other things, Choudhury said the county failed to "demonstrate irreparable harm," which she said was a "critical prerequisite" for such an order.

The ruling, however, doesn't address the legality of the county's ban or James' request that the lawsuit be dismissed. Those issues will be decided at a later date.

Last month, James, a Democrat, issued a "cease and desist" letter to the county demanding it rescind the ban because she said it violates New York's anti-discrimination laws. The ban also faces a legal challenge from a local women's roller derby league, which has asked a state court to invalidate it.
