Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Tennessee’s Anti-Drag Law

Posted March 31, 2023 by with 3 comments

The anti-drag law was supposed to go into effect tonight at midnight (April 1st), but now it’s on hold for two weeks thanks to a federal judge. A status conference will be held next week to schedule future hearings, but if this keeps getting appealed, I wonder if it could end up at the Supreme Court? For now, this is some welcome good news for the state of Tennessee. More details on the lawsuit and an explanation as to why the judge—who, interestingly, is a 2017 Trump appointee—issued the restraining order is here at LawDork.
