Texas Governor’s Investigations Into Parents of Trans Child Temporarily Halted

On Tuesday, Lambda Legal and the ACLU filed a suit to block Texas from performing a child abuse investigation on a family seeking healthcare for a transgender child.

On Wednesday, Judge Amy Clark Meachum, a Travis County district court judge, granted a temporary restraining order to prevent the state from this family’s specific child abuse investigation. It will, however, allow other investigations to continue under a controversial directive from Abbott last week instructing the Texas DFPS to investigate gender-affirming care for Texas youth.
