Judge issues temporary injunction barring Texas from investigating pediatric gender-affirming care as ‘child abuse’

(CNN)A judge in Texas blocked the state from enforcing Gov. Greg Abbott’s order to investigate gender-affirming care of minors as “child abuse.”

“The court finds sufficient cause to enter a temporary injunction,” Judge Amy Clark Meachum, in Travis County, said Friday evening.

The judge said Abbott’s order was “beyond the scope of his authority and unconstitutional,” and stated that parents of a transgender child and a psychologist who filed suit against the governor were likely to prevail in their case.
