Case Summary

This is a lawsuit brought by transgender adolescents and their parents challenging Florida's ban on medical care for transgender minors. The challenged bans prohibited the use of puberty blockers to stop or delay normal puberty as well as the use of hormones or hormone antagonists in order to affirm a person's perception of his or her sex if that perception was inconsistent with natal sex, rendering violation a crime and grounds for terminating a healthcare practitioner's medical license.

This is a lawsuit brought by transgender adolescents and their parents challenging Florida's ban on medical care for transgender minors. The challenged bans prohibited the use of puberty blockers to stop or delay normal puberty as well as the use of hormones or hormone antagonists in order to affirm a person's perception of his or her sex if that perception was inconsistent with natal sex, rendering violation a crime and grounds for terminating a healthcare practitioner's medical license. On March 23, 2023, plaintiffs filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, alleging that the transgender medical bans (Board of Medicine, Rule 64B8-9.019, Fla. Admin. Code; and Board of Osteopathic Medicine, Rule 64B15-14.014, Fla. Admin. Code) violated the due process rights of parent-plaintiffs to make medical decisions to ensure the health and wellbeing of their children and to seek and obtain effective medical treatment for their children.  They further asserted that the bans violated equal protection by banning essential medical treatment to the adolescent-plaintiffs because they were transgender. They sued Florida's Surgeon General, the Florida Board of Medicine and individual members in their official capacities, and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine and individual members in their official capacities.  Plaintiffs, represented by Southern Legal Counsel, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, and GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders, sought declaratory and injunctive relief, including enjoining enforcement of the transgender medical bans, as well as attorneys' fees and costs. The case was assigned to District Judge Robert L. Hinkle. 

Parent-plaintiffs filed an amended complaint and a motion for a preliminary injunction on April 24, 2023.  The motion for preliminary relief, filed by three parent-plaintiffs, urged that their children would suffer immediate and irreparable harm as the result of being unable to obtain medically necessary and time-sensitive care. 

On May 18, 2023, plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint, adding the state Attorney General as well as twenty individual state attorneys as defendants. The second amended complaint also incorporated SB 254, a transgender healthcare ban which went into effect on May 17, 2023. SB 254 criminalized doctors for providing gender-affirming care to minors, gave non-supportive parents the upper hand in child custody disputes over transgender minors, and imposed new restrictions on gender-affirming care for adults, including onerous written consent procedures and a requirement that all care must be provided by an in-person physician. On May 31, the Attorney General filed a motion to dismiss the case against her, asserting that she was an inappropriate defendant because she had no authority to enforce and no other involvement with the challenged bans.

On June 6, 2023, the court issued an order granting plaintiffs' request for a preliminary injunction and enjoining enforcement of the transgender medical bans against transgender children and their parents in Florida. The court noted that the bans prohibited transgender minors from receiving specific kinds of widely accepted care and prohibits doctors from providing such care. Acknowledging that "gender identity is real," the court explained that "the overwhelming weight of medical authority support[ed] treatment of transgender patients" in appropriate circumstances with the GnRH agonists and cross-sex hormones prohibited under the challenged bans.  Assessing plaintiffs' due process challenge, the court found "that the plaintiffs are likely to succeed on their claim that they have obtained appropriate medical care for their children to this point, that qualified professionals have properly evaluated the children's medical conditions and needs in accordance with the well-established standards of care, and that the plaintiffs and their children, in consultation with their treating professionals, have determined that the benefits of treatment . . . will outweigh the risks."  As to the equal protection claim, the court held that intermediate scrutiny applied to the alleged differential treatment on the basis of sex and transgender status.  Applying intermediate scrutiny, the court found that the state's decision to ban the treatments at issue was not rationally related to a legitimate state interest, because "dissuading a person from conforming to the person’s gender identity rather than to the person’s natal sex," a substantial motivating factor for the bans, "is not a legitimate state interest." Ultimately, the court explained, state action motivated by purposeful discrimination violates the Equal Protection Clause.  Moreover, the court held, because the state could not properly prohibit the treatment at issue, the plaintiffs were likely to prevail on their claim that the bans violated their right to control their children’s medical care.  Because plaintiffs were likely to prevail on the merits, and because the challenged bans would cause irreparable harm to their children but would cause defendants no harm, the court granted the preliminary injunction against the Surgeon General, the members of the Florida Board of Medicine and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine, and the State Attorneys. (The injunction did not run against the Attorney General, pending a ruling on her motion to dismiss.  It also didn't run against the Boards themselves, as agencies of the state.) Pursuant to the terms of the injunction, defendants were not to enforce the challenged bans against the three plaintiffs that had sought the injunction. 2023 WL 3833848. 

On June 14, 2023, the parent-plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the Attorney General, and on June 15, 2023 the court denied the Attorney General’s motion to dismiss as moot and dismissed her as a defendant. The parent-plaintiffs and 19 of the 20 State Attorneys then reached a stipulated dismissal agreement on June 19, 2023. Under this agreement, the State Attorneys would be dismissed as defendants on the condition that they abide by the preliminary injunction as long as it remained in effect, abide by any future injunctions granted against the remaining defendants, and agree not to enforce the transgender medical bans. The court granted the dismissal on June 22, 2023, and the State Attorney for the Fifth Judicial Circuit of Florida is the only remaining State Attorney defendant in this case.

The remaining defendants appealed the district court’s order granting preliminary injunction to the Eleventh Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals on June 27, 2023 (23-12159). As of October 24, 2023, the appeal is still pending in the Eleventh Circuit.

Meanwhile in the district court, plaintiffs filed a second motion for preliminary injunction on July 24, 2023, which sought to enjoin defendants from enforcing the restrictions imposed on transgender adults in SB 254. Plaintiffs argued that the burdens imposed on transgender adults by SB 254 meant that transgender adults bars them from receiving timely care, or in some cases, at all. On July 27, 2023, with leave from the court, plaintiffs also filed a third amended complaint, which joined a group of transgender adults, who had all been diagnosed with gender dysphoria and received ongoing transition-related care, as plaintiffs in the case. On July 31, 2023, plaintiffs—including the parent-plaintiffs and the transgender adult plaintiffs—filed a motion for class certification. The district court heard oral argument for both the second motion for preliminary injunction and the motion for class certification on September 1, 2023.

On September 11, 2023, the district court denied plaintiffs’ second motion for preliminary injunction. The court found that plaintiffs had not shown a substantial likelihood of success on their merits of the case and failed to show that they would suffer substantial injury should SB 254 be enforced against the adult plaintiffs. Specifically, the court noted that unlike with the minor plaintiffs, SB 254 did not prohibit the adult plaintiffs from receiving gender-affirming care. Although the adult plaintiffs could not continue to receive care from their current providers, the court determined that they would likely be able to receive care from other providers. Furthermore, the district court found that plaintiffs were less likely to succeed on the merits of their claim following a decision issued by the Eleventh Circuit on August 21, 2023 in Eknes-Tucker v. Ivey. In that case, which challenged similar gender-affirming care bans for minors in Alabama, the Eleventh Circuit found that the plaintiffs did not demonstrate the existence of a constitutional right to treat one’s children with transitioning medications and did not show that the challenged act in Alabama created a sex-based classification. The Eleventh Circuit held in Eknes-Tucker that the district court should have applied rational basis review, and thus abused its discretion by evaluating the Act under strict scrutiny. 80 F.4th 1205. Based on this guidance from the Eleventh Circuit in Eknes-Tucker, the district court in this case denied plaintiffs second motion for preliminary injunction. The preliminary injunction that the district court granted on June 6, 2023 remains in effect pending the Eleventh Circuit’s decision on appeal.

The district court then granted plaintiffs’ motion for class certification on October 18, 2023, certifying two classes and a subclass. The first class consists of “all transgender adults in Florida who seek gender-affirming treatment with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, or surgery. The second class consists of “all transgender minors in Florida who seek gender-affirming treatment with puberty-blockers or cross-sex hormones and their parents.” Finally, the subclass, which is a subset of the second class, consists of “all transgender minors in Florida who seek but are prohibited by state law from obtaining gender-affirming treatment with puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones and their parents.” The order also specified that transgender individuals—either minors or adults—need not be diagnosed with gender dysphoria to be class members.

As of October 24, 2023, the trial in the district court is set to begin on December 13, 2023.
