Second circuit reverses Trump on rolling back civil rights protection to gender only
The Second Circuit has ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act does include sexual orientation implicitly as part of sex in employment cases, as in the Buzz Feed LGBT story today.
The case is Zarda v. Altitude Express.
It is not yet clear that this includes gender identity.
But it would appear to obviate the need for ENDA.
The Trump administration had tried to scale back administrative protections to gender only.
