Court refuses Florida’s request to reinstate anti-drag law

By Amy Howe on Nov. 16 at 5:26 p.m.

 A divided Supreme Court on Thursday denied Florida’s request to allow it to temporarily enforce a law that makes it a misdemeanor to allow children at drag performances. The brief unsigned order means that the state cannot apply the law anywhere in the state while a Florida restaurant’s challenge to the law continues.

Three justices – Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch – indicated that they would have granted the state’s application, but they did not provide any explanation for their votes.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh penned a three-page statement, joined (with the exception of one footnote) by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, in which he explained that the court had properly denied the state’s request because the justices are unlikely to grant review and take up the issue that the state had challenged at this stage of the proceedings. :snip: https://www.scotusblog.com/2023/11/court-refuses-floridas-request-to-reinstate-anti-drag-law/
