- Transgender athletes and the law…
It’s Friday and I’m not even going to try to provide a thorough summary of the 9th Circuit’s 88-page decision involving Idaho’s ban on transgender students participating in athletic events. Suffice it to say the court declared that Idaho’s sweeping ban went too far and should be enjoined. As we’ve noted repeatedly in the Daily Dawg, this is an issue that judges are not going to agree on. We will eventually get a Supreme Court ruling on the issue. Until then, we in Texas follow state and UIL rules about this divisive issue.
This one is Hecox v. Little, decided by the 9th Circuit on August 17, 2023. It’s located at 2023 WL 5283127.
