ACR Project Files Amicus Brief at 6th Circuit Opposing Administration’s Efforts to Gut Injunction Barring Federal Imposition of Uniform Bathroom, Locker Room, and Shower Policies Across All Schools and Employers

Today, we submitted an amicus brief to the 6th Circuit, asking the Court of Appeals to affirm the trial court's injunction barring the Biden Administration from implementing faulty "guidance" that the Department of Education and the Chairman of the EEOC had issued to their regulated communities. Those "guidance" documents misread Title IX and Title VII (as well as the Supreme Court's Bostock decision), to require all schools (that receive federal funding) and all employers to allow transgender individuals to use the single-sex bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers provided for the gender with which those individuals identify. Our brief explains how neither the statutes, nor Bostock, do any such thing.

ACR Project and Manhattan Institute File with 4th Circuit Amicus Brief Supporting the Coalition for TJ’s Opposition to Intentional Racial Discrimination in School Assignments

Today, we joined with the Manhattan Institute in submitting an amicus brief to the Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, supporting the Coalition for TJ in defending the lower court's summary judgment enjoining the Fairfax County Public Schools from continuing to racially discriminate against Northern Virginia's Asian population in school assignments. FCPS was wrong to insist on allocating children's K-12 education based on race, just as their predecessors were wrong during Jim Crow, and just as the school districts involved in Parents Involved in Cmty. Sch. v. Seattle Sch. Dist. were wrong 15 years ago.

ACR Project Files with Supreme Court Merits Amicus Brief on Behalf of CFER Foundation in SFFA’s Litigation Against Harvard and UNC

Today, on behalf of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, we filed with the Supreme Court an amicus brief on behalf of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, supporting Students for Fair Admissions's challenge to race-based admissions programs at Harvard and UNC. Through it, we argue that, recognizing the Constitutional and legal bar against race-based admissions, the Court should bring its jurisprudence back into accord with the mainstream, bipartisan majority of the American people's settled understanding on the subject and end our decades' long departure from equally protecting college applicants.

ACR Project Co-Signs Coalition Letter to OCR on Title IX Regulations

Today, the ACR Project joined a diverse coalition ofmore than two dozen organizations representing education policy experts, public interest lawyers, civil rights leaders, women, and thousands of parents and concerned citizens in urging the Office of Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education to end its current rulemaking under Title IX. There is no reason to rewrite the Department's Title IX rules now. Nor would there be any legitimate grounds for the Department to displace Congress's legislative role by trying to substantively alter the scope of Title IX through rule-making.

ACR Project 9th Circuit Amicus Brief, Supporting Meland’s Request for Injunction Against Enforcement of California’s Legislation Allocating Board Seats by Sex

The ACR Project filed an amicus brief with the 9th Circuit. The Court of Appeals should reverse because the District Court wrongly accepted as "exceedingly persuasive" the state's embrace of what precedent rightly calls a "pernicious and offensive" notion -- that women always and everywhere need governmental support to compete. It should also reverse because, over the last 7 years, the Supreme Court has quietly replaced the standard the lower court used with a new, stricter test for gauging the Constitutionality of governments' sex-discriminatory policies when acting as sovereigns.

Californians for Equal Rights Foundation Petition Stage Amicus Brief (UNC)

On behalf of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, we filed with the Supreme Court this amicus brief, supporting the petition for certiorari before judgment filed by Students for Fair Admissions. The Court should take up the UNC case along with the Harvard one (whose consideration remains pending). They present a once-a-generation chance to correct previous errors, restore equal protection, and rid America of racial discrimination at both private and public colleges and universities.
