Supremes Have Already Ruled Against States Suing Justice Dep't Over Transgender Bathrooms

From Raw Story:
Texas announced Wednesday that it was joining ten other states in suing the Justice Department and Department of Education over the administration’s transgender bathroom policy. However, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that is impossible because they will lack standing in court.
“The Supreme Court has made clear that one cannot sue an agency just because they disagree with the agency’s guidance,” the ACLU said in a press release Wednesday. “If these attorneys general disagree with the agency’s interpretation of what the federal ban on sex discrimination means, they can make that argument to the court when it arises in a real case.”
Instead, the ACLU said that this is nothing more than a “political stunt” from conservative states.
