The conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let a Republican-backed law in Idaho that criminalizes gender-affirming care for transgender minors broadly take effect after a federal judge blocked it as unconstitutional. The court granted Republican Idaho Attorney General Raúl Labrador’s request to narrow a preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Lynn Winmill, who ruled that the law violated the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law, while the state pursues an appeal. The Supreme Court’s order allows the state to enforce the ban against everyone except the plaintiffs who challenged it.
