Texas Supreme Court Allows Child Abuse Investigations of Parents of Transgender Children

A Texas Supreme Court ruled Friday that the state could continue to resume investigating parents for child abuse if they facilitate “gender-affirming” treatment for transgender children.
A lower court judge reimplemented a temporary injunction in March, blocking Texas child abuse investigations of the families of transgender children. That prompted the state to file its case with its Supreme Court.
The state’s highest court ruled (pdf) that the lower court’s injunction was overreaching when it halted investigations into those families, adding that it was “was outside of the court of appeals’ authority to protect parties’ rights.” The family who filed the initial lawsuit is protected under the injunction, according to the Supreme Court.
