Hi, what are you looking for?
The case reinforces the likelihood of Alabama loses its lawsuit over a similar law criminalizing the provision of gender-affirming care.
The bill is one of the few pieces of legislation targeting the LGBTQ community that crossed the finish line in this legislative session.
The state spent more than $500,000 on experts and nearly $1 million on legal counsel from influential D.C. law firm Cooper and Kirk.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs argued that the state is criminalizing a treatment that is the standard of care, and is discriminating against transgender youth.
The law would criminalize parents and doctors attempting to provide gender-transition medical treatment to minors.
The law restricts discussions on gender identity and sexual orientation in Alabama's kindergarten through fifth-grade classes.
