(Eric Gay/Associated Press) Randa Mulanax, an investigative supervisor with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, testified in court today (Friday, March 11) that child abuse investigations being ordered under Gov.

Greg Abbott’s anti-trans directive are being held to a different standard that other investigations, according to a report by the Texas Tribune. Mulanax said that not allowing investigators to discuss investigations with each other is “unethical.” Her testimony came during a hearing in Judge Amy Meachum’s court to decide whether a temporary restraining order halting Department of Family and Protective Services’ investigation of a trans teen’s supportive family should be expanded to protect all such families in the state.

Mulanax, who said she has decided to resign from DFPS because of this directive, testified that investigators are prohibited from discussing cases with their colleagues through either text or email, and they are requires to investigate, even when there is no evidence of abuse.According to the Tribune, Mulanax said she is resigning because, “I’ve always felt that, at the end of the day, the department had children’s best interest at heart.

I no longer feel that way.” Meachum issued a temporary restraining order last week stopping DFPS’ investigation into the family who are plaintiffs in Doe v.
