(Erich Schlegel/AP Images for Human Rights Campaign) Texas’ Third Circuit Court of Appeals has once again dismissed an appeal by Attorney General Ken Paxton, leaving in place a state-wide injunction halting investigations into families and medical professionals providing gender-affirming healthcare for transgender children.

In a ruling issued Monday, March 21, the appellate court wrote, “Having reviewed the record, we conclude that reinstating the temporary injunction is necessary to maintain the status quo and preserve the rights of all parties.” The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by the family of a trans teen against Gov.
