Florida ban on gender-affirming care for trans kids struck down by judge
Quick Glance: Federal Judge Overturns Law Blocking Treatment for Transgender Children
  • Federal Judge Robert Hinkle deemed a Florida law unconstitutional that prevented transgender minors from receiving gender-affirming care and severely restricted treatment for adults.

  • The court prohibited the prescription of puberty blockers and hormonal treatments for transgender minors with parental consent and halted the restriction that only doctors, not nurses or other qualified medical practitioners, could provide treatment to transgender adults.

  • The judge likened opponents of transgender rights to those against equality for minorities and women, emphasizing that discrimination against transgender individuals, much like racism and misogyny, will diminish over time.

  • While Governor Ron DeSantis criticized the ruling, those who sued the state celebrated the decision, stating that the law had no medical basis and aimed to target transgender individuals unjustly.

Quick Glance: Judge Reveals Juror's 'Cousin' Claimed Trump's Conviction on Facebook - Verification Uncertain
  • The judge in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial informed lawyers on Friday that a person claiming to be a juror’s cousin wrote on social media that the former president would be found guilty before his historic conviction - although there is no proof that the commentator was actually related to the juror or had inside knowledge.

  • Judge Juan Merchan said the comment was left on a Facebook post by the New York court system on May 29 - one day before Trump’s conviction - and stated, 'My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted.'

  • It was not mentioned whether Merchan believed the comment to be legitimate, if court staff had investigated the matter, or if further action would be taken.

  • Conservative figures have taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to argue that if the Facebook comment is indeed from a juror’s cousin, Trump’s conviction should be overturned.

Quick Glance: Georgia Appeals Court Delays Trump's Election Interference Case Until at Least October
  • A Georgia appeals court officially postponed the racketeering case alleging Donald Trump conspired to illegally overturn the 2020 election results until at least October.

  • Proceeding to trial before the November elections became impossible as the appeals court decided to halt the case, leaving insufficient time for a trial before November.

  • The judge presiding over the case, Scott McAfee, had not set a trial date and was unlikely to do so while Trump and the others appealed his ruling allowing Willis to remain on the case.

  • In Florida, Judge Aileen Cannon delayed a hearing and scheduled a multi-day hearing to address Trump's claim of improper appointment of special counsel Jack Smith in the case.

Quick Glance: Kansas Supreme Court: Voting Not a Fundamental Right
  • A split Kansas Supreme Court ruling last week issued in a lawsuit over a 2021 election law found that voting is not a fundamental right listed in the state Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

  • The determination that voting is not a fundamental right could embolden state lawmakers to push for further restrictions on advance voting and mail-in ballots.

  • The constant changes in election law are also confusing not only to election officials, but to voters, said Jamie Shew, election officer for Douglas County — Kansas’ fifth most populous county.
