Looks like gay-conversion therapy might not be getting the boot in California just yet. On Friday a federal appeals court put a hold on the state’s new law that would stop therapists from trying to revert a minor’s sexual orientation. The state was sued on the grounds that the law, which was to take effect Jan. 1, is unconstitutional and violates free speech rights. Their first court case was lost, but the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to block the law as it investigates.
