Judge Issues Major Ruling On Gender Transition Of Children

via ABC

A North Dakota judge denied a temporary restraining order requested by plaintiffs seeking to block the state’s ban on gender transition treatment for minors.

The judge cited a delay in filing the complaint and the argument based on inclusion in a protected class not previously recognized by the North Dakota Supreme Court or a new application of state constitutional principles.

The law, which took effect in April, makes it a felony for healthcare providers to perform gender transition surgery on a minor, and opponents argue that the restrictions will harm transgender youth. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)

Gender Justice’s lead attorney Brittany Stewart said, “We’re disappointed in this ruling, but we are confident that when all the evidence has been presented, the court will ultimately find that ending the health care ban permanently is the only just, equitable, and constitutional resolution.”

Judge Lofgren cited in his ruling, the “nearly five-month delay” that occureed before the plaintiffs filed their suit.

Adding, that the case was based “upon inclusion in a protected class not previously recognized by the North Dakota Supreme Court or a new application of state constitutional principles.”

North Dakota is among roughly two dozen states with Republican-led legislatures that have passed similar laws, leading to legal challenges.
