Last month, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman joined 14 other state attorneys general in filing an amicus brief (also known as a friend-of-the-court brief) opposing President Donald Trump’s ban on “transgender” persons entering the U.S. Armed Forces. According to Attorney General Schneiderman’s website, the amicus brief “argues that banning transgender individuals serving in the military is unconstitutional, against the interest of national security, and harmful to the transgender community at large.”
Unfortunately, expending time and resources on nonsense like this is nothing new for Attorney General Schneiderman. Here are some examples of his other recent activities:
- Last month, Attorney General Schneiderman led “a coalition of 14 Attorneys General in filing an amicus brief” supporting the “right” of a minor undocumented immigrant to obtain an elective abortion in Texas;
- Also last month, Attorney General Schneiderman led a group of 18 Attorneys General in filing an amicus brief making the baseless and frivolous legal argument that “employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.” The brief, which was filed on National Coming Out Day, related to an employment dispute in the State of Georgia. The Attorney General filed another brief in June 2017 that made a similar argument;
- In April 2017, Attorney General Schneiderman led a group of 16 Attorneys General in filing an amicus brief attacking an Ohio law that defunded Planned Parenthood;
- In March 2017, Attorney General Schneiderman and others filed an amicus brief in support of the “right” of a “transgender” student to use opposite-sex facilities in a public school in Virginia.
At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we find Attorney General Schneiderman guilty of wasting the tax dollars of hardworking New Yorkers to push a far-left social agenda in cases that have little or nothing to do with the State of New York.
