No justices dissented from the order granting the petition to hear the case involving a Tennessee statute. The Court did not explain its decision.

The Supreme Court agreed on June 24 to hear a challenge by the federal government to a Tennessee law that prohibits the use of puberty blockers and medical treatments for minors who identify as transgender.

The decision comes as several states have enacted legislation regarding transgender individuals’ treatments, participation in school sports, use of gender-specific bathrooms, and drag shows.

The court granted the petition for certiorari, or review, in United States v. Skrmetti, in an unsigned order.
