Higher Education Webcast from Steptoe & Johnson PLLC on August 30, 2016 - "The Texas Transgender Guidance Case Impact on Fall 2016 and Beyond"

  • August 30, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm


A federal court in Texas has enjoined the enforcement of the transgender guidance issued last May by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education (“Departments”). The court determined that the injunction should have nationwide effect until such time as the court has the opportunity to fully hear the case on the merits or until the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issues some further direction.  Consequently, the injunction impacts the manner in which every college in the United States administers Title IX.

In this webcast, Jim Newberry will discuss this recent decision and address topics such as:  

  • The Issues Raised in Texas Transgender Litigation
  • The Terms of the August 21 Injunction
  • Impact of the Injunction on Fall 2016 Operations
  • Implications of the Ruling on Other Department of Education Guidance
