Lainey Armistead, a former West Virginia State University soccer player, wanted to intervene in the lawsuit to defend the bill.
"I believe that protecting fairness in women's sports is a women's rights issue," said Armistead. "This isn't just about fair play for me: It's about protecting fairness and safety for female athletes across West Virginia."
