Tingley v. Ferguson (Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals)
Petition for Rehearing (Ninth Circuit 2022) and Petition for Certiorari (to be filed in the USSC – 2023)
The Ninth Circuit recently upheld a draconian state law that prohibits licensed counselors from engaging in “sexual orientation change efforts” with minor children. The law prohibits pure speech, not merely techniques like electro-shock therapy, and it targets counselors and counselees who hold traditional views of marriage and sexuality. IFF wrote to support counselor Brian Tingley’s petition for rehearing by the full Ninth Circuit (all judges, not just a panel of three).
