The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal to a California law banning therapists from trying to change a minor’s sexual orientation through conversion therapy, allowing the law to stand.
The decision leaves intact a federal appeals court decision upholding the state’s first-of-its-kind law, passed in 2012, Bloomberg reports.
The ban was challenged on “religious freedom” grounds, led by licensed therapist and minister Donald Welch.
