Two Christian teachers have added California Democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta to a lawsuit that claims they were forced to lie to parents about students confused about their gender.

An amended lawsuit filed on January 29 by attorneys for Rincon Middle School teachers Elizabeth Mirabelli and Lori Ann West alleges that the educators had their First Amendment rights violated by policies related to the treatment of transgender and gender diverse K-8 students.

The lawsuit claims that the Escondido Union School District (EUSD) policies forced teachers to aid in students’ "social transition" by using pronouns and gender-specific names requested by the students during school hours. The teachers were allegedly told to revert to the students’ biological pronouns and legal names when speaking with parents "in order to actively hide information about their child’s gender identity."
