The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Kellie Fiedorek regarding 10 states that filed suit Friday in State of Nebraska v. United States of America (in addition to 13 that already filed suit) against the Obama administration’s directive to public schools that would force students to share rooms on overnight school trips and undress in the same locker room with members of the opposite sex:
 
“The Obama administration cannot unilaterally redefine federal law to serve its own political ends and lawlessly impose its will on local schools. Twenty-three states have now filed suit to stop this overreach, designed to force students to shower and undress in the same locker rooms and to share rooms on overnight trips with students of the opposite sex—something they shouldn’t ever be forced to do. The administration has exceeded its authority in threatening schools that choose to protect children’s privacy. Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson and the growing number of states across the country who joined him in this lawsuit are to be commended for exercising common sense and defending the privacy and safety of children.”
