â??All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State
wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge
the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any
State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of
law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the

and as such he is transgendered. He claims it is his protected Constitutional
liberty interest to use the male bathroom, without having to show both his
birth certificate and proof of sex-reassignment surgery. The state of North
Carolina asserts that all people must use the bathroom that corresponds to the
sex assigned at birth, and show proof â?? i.e. a valid birth certificate each
time they enter the bathroom. The Obama administration believed John should be
allowed to use the bathroom of his choosing, and the Trump administration
believes North Carolina has the right to govern itself and pass its own rules
on bathroom use without being harassed by the national government. Apply the
three judicial philosophies to this case, and assume John sues before the US
Supreme Court. What are the arguments on behalf of John? What are the arguments
on behalf of North Carolina? What is your opinion? Why? Discuss thoroughly.
