Federal Judge Body Slams DeSantis’ Attacks on Trans Kids

There's some good news out of Florida—for once.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle didn’t mince words in his barnburner of an opinion striking down Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ draconian anti-trans bill. In his opinion for Doe v. Ladapo, Hinkle wrote: “Pushing individuals away from their transgender identity is not a legitimate state interest.”

On a new episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jess and Imani break down the decision and what’s next for trans rights in the Sunshine State.
