CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A federal judge is considering a motion from the state to dismiss challenges to New Hampshire’s new anti-discrimination laws filed by teachers and administrators who say they are confused about what they can legally teach. Judge Paul Barbadoro said Wednesday he’d make a decision within 60 to 90 days. Two lawsuits have been consolidated. The National Education Association-New Hampshire, which represents the majority of all public school employees in the state, and two diversity, equity and inclusion school administrators, sued New Hampshire Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut, Commission on Human Rights Chair leaders and Labor Commissioner Kenneth Merrifield. A similar lawsuit also was filed by the AFT-New Hampshire union, three high school teachers; and two parents.
