In an unprecedented move, amici briefs supporting Christiansen were filed by the government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), 128 Members of Congress, including Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders ("Congress"), the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU") and a coalition of civil rights groups and public interest organizations, LAMBDA and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
