Groombridge, Wu, Baughman & Stone LLP, along with the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Idaho, W/rest Collective; and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, secured a preliminary injunction halting the enforcement of Idaho’s HB 71, a law banning gender-affirming healthcare for transgender youth.
The U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho has ruled that the law’s prohibition of hormones, puberty blockers, and other medically accepted practices violates the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause under the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The victory came on behalf of two Idaho families asserting that the law, signed in earlier this year, violates the rights of transgender youth, their families and medical providers.
Partner Eric Stone led the team from Groombridge, Wu, which includes associates Philip May, Ariella Barel and Kyle Bersani.
