President Donald Trump is about to appoint John Gore, the attorney who defended North Carolina’s controversial transgender bathroom bill, HB2, to a key civil rights role in the Department of Justice to head up his civil rights team.

Mr. Gore defended the University of North Carolina in a lawsuit challenging the state’s infamous anti-transgender bathroom law.

In December he successfully defended the law, which forces transgender people to use toilets that correspond with their gender at birth and omits LGBT people from the state’s anti-discrimination protections.

Gore took over defending the North Carolina law, which nullified local laws protecting transgender individuals who chose to use a bathroom based on their gender identity, after North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said that his office would not go to court to repel legal challenges to the law.

The Administration has not publicly confirmed Gore’s appointment, and there has been no formal nomination
