Howe v. Haslam (USA)

The Tennessee Court of appeals affirmed the dismissal of Howe v. Haslam, a lawsuit brought against Tennesse’s HB600 the “Equal Access to Intrastate Commerce Act”, signed  into law on May 23, 2011,  that prevents any municipality from extending non-discrimination protections to GLBT people because Tennessee state law does not currently cover sexual orientation or gender identity.

Tennessee law defines “sex” as “the designation of an individual person as male or female as indicated on the individual’s birth certificate.”
