Attorney General Yost Statement on Joining Amicus Brief Sent to U.S. Supreme Court

8/23/2019

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost today issued the following statement on joining an amicus brief sent to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“This case is about whether the judiciary gets to write new laws or if that should be left to elected legislators. The plain language of Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating because of sex, not sexual orientation or gender identity. If the law is to be amended, Congress, not the courts, should be the one doing it.”
