(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.
Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services after Abbott ordered DFPS to begin investigations based on Paxton’s non-binding opinion claiming that gender-affirming health care for trans children is child abuse.
