The Biden administration is pulling the Justice Department out of a lawsuit challenging Connecticut's policy for transgender high school athletes.
The suit was filed by families of girls who say they lost out on scholarships and other opportunities by being forced to compete against athletes born male.
The Trump administration filed a brief in support of the suit, but that support was withdrawn Tuesday.
The case is scheduled to go before a judge Friday.
