A Travis County District Court entered a second injunction today (Friday, July 8) against the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and Commissioner Masters, barring them from implementing the agency’s rule expanding the definition of child abuse to presumptively treat the provision of gender affirming care as child abuse against two more families: Mirabel Voe and her son Antonio and Wanda Roe and her son Tommy, according to a press release for the ACLU of Texas.

According to the press release, “the injunction bars DFPS from implementing the rule by investigating these families based solely on allegations that they are providing gender affirming care to their adolescents, or taking any action in open investigations other than to close them so long as DFPS can do so without making further contact with the families. “The court is still considering the request for additional injunctive relief to protect the other clients, the Briggle family and Texas PFLAG members with transgender children.” Today’s ruling came in the lawsuit PFLAG v.

Abbott, filed by Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union Jon L. Stryker and Slobodan Randjelović LGBTQ & HIV Project, the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, the ACLU of Texas, and the law firm of Baker Botts LLP.
