Federal judge enjoins state’s ban on transgender care for minors
A federal judge trumped the state legislature and Gov. Ron DeSantis when he issued a preliminary injunction allowing three transgender minors to continue receiving gender dysphoria medical care.
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida Judge Robert Hinkle’s order is in direct conflict with Senate Bill 254, which prohibits transgender minors from obtaining prescriptions for puberty blockers.
“SB 254 is an unconstitutional law and therefore, if the state’s attorneys decide to prosecute a doctor or the boards of medicine decide to revoke the license of a doctor, they’re doing so in contravention of a federal court order,” said Attorney Simone Chriss, director of the Transgender Rights Initiative at Southern Legal Counsel in Gainesville.
