Federal Court Upholds New Jersey’s Ban on ‘Ex-Gay’ Therapy [The Advocate]

November 10, 2013


Just like its predecessor in California was in August, New Jersey’s ban on so-called ex-gay therapy was just upheld in federal court.

Judge Freda Wolfson of the U.S. District Court in New Jersey issued a ruling Friday declaring that the New Jersey law “restricts neither speech nor religious expression,” according to the National Center for Lesbian Rights. The judge dismissed a legal challenge from the right-wing legal group Liberty Counsel, filed on behalf of therapists who wanted to engage in the scientifically discredited, harmful practices on minors.
