NC Lawyer Who Defended HB2 Selected To Lead DOJ’s Civil Rights Division

As the transition between the outgoing administration and the new Trump administration continues to take place, many important offices are being filled.

One of those was late Friday afternoon, when the Trump administration selected John Gore, a North Carolina lawyer who defended the state against attacks on HB2, as the head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

Of course, HB2 was the controversial piece of legislation that aimed to keep sexual predators in restrooms frequented by their own sex.

Gore also has an extensive and decorated history of defending many local and state governments against controversial challenges to their redistricting plans, like the one North Carolina is currently fighting in the Supreme Court.

Earlier this week, Gore withdrew from his role as a part of the HB2 defense, obviously clearing the way for him to take this new position with the Trump administration.

If Gore can be looked upon to do anything as the head of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, it will be to reverse the Obama policy of using that division to attackĀ the ability of states to govern themselves.
