Nassau County has lost its bid to block the state from taking legal action against its ban on women’s and girls' teams that include female transgender players, the AP reports.

The women of the Long Island Roller Rebels league took issue with the ban and sued the county to lift the ban. That's when Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman brought the case to District Court in an attempt to leave the ban in place.

U.S. District Court Judge Nusrat Choudhury dismissed Nassau County’s lawsuit seeking to prevent attorney general, Letitia James from taking legal action against the county for its ban, which James has said is “transphobic” and violates the state’s anti-discrimination laws.

“This decision is a tremendous victory for justice and the rule of law, but our work here is not done,” James’ office said in an emailed statement Friday. “It’s past time for Nassau County to rescind this order and treat all our communities with the basic respect and dignity they deserve.”

The office declined to say when or if it will sue to block the ban, saying it will review the decision, which was handed down in federal court in Central Islip.

Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman, who issued the ban, vowed to appeal. “We vehemently disagree with the decision,” he said in an emailed statement.
