W.Va. AG Morrisey to Newsmax: ‘Thrilled’ With Ruling Upholding Trans Sports Ban

A Democrat-appointed federal judge’s ruling upholding a West Virginia law that requires students to participate in school-sanctioned sports based on their biological sex is a victory not only for common sense, but for fairness, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey told Newsmax on Friday night.

U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Goodwin, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, ruled Jan. 5 that the “Save Women’s Sports” bill passed by the Legislature in April 2021 and signed by Gov. Jim Justice did not violate the 14th Amendment rights of an 11-year-old transgender girl who wanted to compete in middle school girls cross country and track and that it also didn’t violate federal Title IX regulations.

“We were thrilled with the win,” Morrisey, a Republican, told “Rob Schmitt Tonight.” “Keep in mind that this is a district court judge appointed by a Democrat, and we think he came up with the right decision. So we applaud him in West Virginia.”
