Texas Supreme Court Rules Against Father of James Younger in Transgender Child Custody Case
Background: Last year, Texas father Jeff Younger lost custody of his son, James, whose mother, Anne Georgulas, wants to surgically transition him into a girl. The Texas Supreme Court has now rejected Jeff’s last-minute appeal to keep Georgulas from transitioning James in California, a “sanctuary state” for trans youth.
Why it matters: After years of favorable rulings, Georgulas has taken James to California. While a Texas court order still bars her from transitioning James without her ex-husband’s consent, Jeff suspects she will use California courts to gain more parental rights and ultimately transition James.
