President Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court on Wednesday to revisit its decision in the case of a Texas property owner whose daughter is a transgender woman who sought to sell a home on the basis of a “tcad” property search.
Trump’s request for the Supreme and District Court to review the court’s January 28 ruling was filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Austin.
In his filing, Trump said the ruling violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, which bars states from denying property rights to minorities based on sex.
“The Supreme Court’s ruling violates the equal protection of the Constitution, and it violates the Constitution’s prohibition against state action to limit the rights of individuals on the ground of sex,” Trump wrote.
The SCOTUS decision also violates the Equal Rights Amendment, he added, noting that “Congress has explicitly recognized that discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity cannot be justified by a State’s interest in protecting public health.”
The appeals court has yet to rule on Trump’s request.
