Gov. Brown Appeals Injunction Against California Conversion Therapy Law

Jim Burroway

January 3rd, 2013

California Gov. Jerry Brown announced that he would appeal a court injunction barring the enforcement of California’s new law which places restrictions on Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE) provided by licensed therapists:

The notice of appeal was filed on behalf of Brown and the Medical Board of California by state Atty.  Gen. Kamala Harris with the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which decided Dec. 21 to block the law that took effect Jan. 1 pending a decision on its constitutionality.

The Ninth Circuit Court issued its injunction following conflicting rulings from two lower courts earlier in December.
