Court suspends law banning "orientation change" therapy; constitutional challenge

California: State Ban on Therapy to Change Gays Is Put on Hold

- AP 12/21/12

"A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on Friday put a hold on a new California law that bans therapy focused on turning gay minors straight. The court issued an injunction until it can hear full arguments. The law was scheduled to take effect Jan. 1 ... therapists and counselors who use “sexual orientation change efforts” on clients under 18 would be engaging in unprofessional conduct and subject to discipline by state licensing boards. This month, two federal judges in California arrived at opposite conclusions on whether the law violates the Constitution."
