ACLU, Lambda Legal to sue over HB2

Reports floating around social media indicate that the ACLU and Lambda Legal will be holding a press conference at 10:00 am this morning, announcing that they will be filing a challenge to NC's outrageous anti-gay law.

The ink is barely dry on the thing - this tells me that they didn't have a problem finding clients with standing to challenge the law and probably have a pretty clear idea of what's unconstitutional about it.

State constitution?

I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me likely that SB2 violates the state constitution as well. Has anyone in the press or among our state NGO's taken up that possibility?
