"This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio Parents of transgender children in Texas are worried about the state trying to criminalize the treatment of adolescents with gender dysphoria Rebecca Bryant is fearful about the governor's order to investigate parents for child abuse if they're providing gender affirmative treatments for their transgender children He's trying to scare families which is working We're scared He's trying to get us to leave Texas which some of us are The first parents to be investigated for helping their teenage transgender daughter seek gender affirming healthcare are suing the Texas governor and the state's child welfare agency A judge has temporarily stopped the state from investigating them Audrey Perez is with the ACLU which brought the suit along with lambda legal This is a clear example of government overreach and intrusion into the lives of Texas families And their kids attempting to dictate what they can and can not do to support their LGBTQ and transgender non binary child Joining me is Anthony Christ a professor at the Georgia state university college of law Tell us about governor Greg Abbott's directive to the department of family and protective services So it actually starts back in August of 2021 when a state representative had asked the attorney general of Texas whether certain kinds of gender affirming healthcare for minors could constitute a form of child abuse under Texas state law Attorney general Paxton came back in February and said yes there is a strong likelihood essentially that recognized and generally accepted forms of treatment and healthcare for trans children could constitute child abuse under state law And then subsequently the governor using that opinion directed the state's child welfare services officials to begin to investigate any parents who were providing these gender affirming treatments and healthcare for their children to investigate them as child abusers and to potentially prosecute them for child abuse I think it should not go on said that March 1st was the Texas primaries And so I don't think the sequencing in the timing of this is exactly removed from politics I think a lot of this is red meat in order to stir up the Republican base and they're using trans children and their parents for political gain So a state court in Austin intervened and issued a temporary restraining order Briefly what was the basis of the judge issuing that order The judge basically said that the investigation and the potential ramifications of such a prosecution for the parents namely they could be on a child abuse list and the collateral consequences that can come from that always in favor of returning to the status quo that existed before the Texas attorney general and the Texas governor began their opinions in directive to investigate and prosecute these parents for providing gender affirming care And so essentially the judge saw that the risks to the parents here by far outweigh whatever interested state had And of course the interest of the children here is outweighed by whatever immediate action Texas wanted to take It falls short of what the families had asked for which was to stop all the investigations by the state of Texas and apparently there were some other families being investigated There will be a fuller hearing and I think the court will then address more of the merits of the claims that have been brought by these anonymous parents The full hearing is going to be so key to see what kind of remedies the ACLU on behalf of these anonymous parents will want and need and that all remains to be seen for sure You mentioned that both the governor and the attorney general face challengers in Tuesday's primary And in a call with reporters on Wednesday the top strategist for the governor's reelection campaign said that being against medical treatment for transgender children and treating it as child abuse was a winning issue for the governor Why are the rights of transgender kids being treated as sort of a battleground for certain conservative groups That's a great question Certainly I think that the Texas department of family and productive services here is being used in a way to turn its mission on its head and abuse children who are some of the most vulnerable children in American society So that is just a sad display on its own And the fact that there's smoking gun evidence here that political operatives see this as an opportunity that they need to grab onto is quite telling the truth of the matter is a trans folks have been the kind of subject of political operatives or should say they've been in their sights for quite some time now and we can go back to North Carolina just a few years ago when they passed the bill restricting back from access and keeping trans folks kind of relegated to second class status So using trans people generally certainly is not a new phenomenon The focus on children does seem to be I think the truth of the matter is most Americans are very sympathetic to trans issues and increasingly so The courts have been increasingly open to transgender claims and have been particularly welcoming of trans students claims under the equal protection clause and title 9 So to me it's just a really strange dynamic because American society as a whole seems to be headed in one direction The courts have been pretty steadily headed in one direction And yet Republicans in Texas are trying to thwart that momentum So it's really quite perplexing Arkansas Kentucky have passed laws prohibiting gender confirming treatments for minors and those are being challenged So tell us about the wider litigation over.

"The court has no jurisdiction to hear the suit No power And the judges would be violating their oath to go ahead and say anything about the other arguments in the case What did you think about justice Alito's descent He called it the third installment in our epic Affordable Care Act trilogy So I just think it shows how contentious the issue is on the court I think it also sort of betrays the justice Alito isn't really viewing this as a law issue that this is for some of the justices the kind of policy issue that you might hear debated and argued about on the cable news shows and that it plays on that level with the justices And I certainly think just as Alito's descending opinion read that way it reads like it's written for that kind of an audience rather than your standard Supreme Court opinion audience Is the cloud over ObamaCare gone now Are the legal challenges behind us Well it's hard for me to say their entirely behind us just because there is so much interest in it and therefore there is so much money available for lawyers and groups that want to challenge it So it's possible we'll hear more of it I would say that I think this is the Supreme Court telling people we really don't want to hear about this anymore Go away Thanks for being on the show Neil That's Neil king cough a Professor of constitutional law at the Georgia state university college of law Coming up next on the Bloomberg law show Apple risks losing billions of dollars after the Epic Games ruling or does it I'm joon grosso and you're.

A lot of times people have very catastrophic. They have some really bizarre memories that lead them back to a past life. That wasn't so much fun.

Karen Regal WBZ Boston's NewsRadio, The CDC is releasing some more evidence about the effectiveness they say of Covid 19 vaccines. The push for evidence coming after the emergence of new variants of the virus, CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky says there are too many people who are still dying from Covid seven day average of daily deaths continues at over 1000 per day. As the president said yesterday. We are working across the federal government and across the Department of Health and Human Services to turn the corner on this pandemic, they said. The director says those who are on vaccinated are over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized for Covid and 11 times more likely to die, the president unveiled new mandates. As keys to reducing the numbers of unvaccinated Americans that's been firing up the opposition. Some unions are already balking at the new mandates. One saying the government should trust its employees to make their own medical decisions under consultation with their doctor. Some Republican governors and lawmakers called the president's move unconstitutional. And the Republican National Committee is already vowing to soup that is CBS's Nancy Cordes.

That's Georgia State University law professor Anthony cries who says the new mandates take the pressure off employers by effectively making the government the bad guy. And while some state lawmakers call the requirements on lawful, Christ says quite the contrary, there's a statutory matter. Congress has given OSHA the authority to promulgate emergency rules.

The mayor sent the council a letter questioning benefits for unvaccinated employees or people who contracted the virus and social settings were three counselor Hugh done, says it would be nearly impossible to determine whether a worker got the virus. It's in the line of duty or when they were off the clock. I think that comes from a place of distrust. It seems the mayor doesn't trust the employees are following covid precautions that they are using while they're on the clock. Maybe for the day. I don't follow that reasoning degrees moving forward.

"This is your guys role as a CIA. And if you're also you have your allies. Why didn't why weren't you able to maybe stop it? Can you understand someone thinking that way? Well, in a sense, but it also is is missing a lot of the history and the context in the background. I mean, you know, look, Al Qaeda became increasingly known bin Laden had, you know, the Declaration of War goes back to 1996 1998. You had the simultaneous attacks in Kenya and Tanzania in 2000. You had the attack on the USS Cole. Now, one of the things that our intelligence community over this period really understood. Was that Al Qaeda was a learning and growing organization that was interested in big, spectacular kinds of coordinated events. And, in fact, you know, intelligence is only valuable to the extent it's acted on and really listen to by policymakers. So that's a really important point here. The intelligence was there, it might. It's never perfect, right. It's never the sort of scenario where you have all the pieces except for the one and you know, it's that you get the sort of imperfect information in your Making judgment calls in the intelligence was there there was a briefing and again it for listeners who haven't looked at the 9 11 report. It is a critical documents in American history in this context, because this you know it starts off. You know, with talking about the sort of planning the preparation, the system was flashing Red Al Qaeda determined to strike in the U. S. This is a briefing that was given you know to the highest levels and it and it didn't really get the level of action so you can unpack it. Um, I don't think that you know that it is. It is fair to lay the responsibility solely on any one institution organization, individual or otherwise, because it's really a whole of government response with intelligence being the part that tries to see into very difficult, very murky spaces where it's hard to see and where you're working with imperfect, incomplete information. Now we got a lot better at it afterwards, Of course, but you know, sort of in the lead up. There was a political element. There was an intelligence element. There was a failure to connect the dots and coordinate among agencies because that was the other thing and part of the reason why DHS came to be and why some of the joint task force and fusion centers came to be because one hand didn't really know what the other was doing. So a lot of changes there. And we should note DHS, Of course, his Department of Homeland Security here let's go back, because when you look at that, from when Operation Enduring Freedom started in 2000 and one and then officially ended in President Obama's In terms of the combat. In 2014. You've got 13 years already. If someone says Well, were we winning in that 13 year period? Now, if you if someone wants to use a metric as Osama bin Laden is death as as the key, then I guess you could say Well, yeah. We did what we're supposed to do, but Someone else could say, But Look how many lives were lost to get to one man or you? You can maybe bring more insight into their professor? Yeah, again. This goes back to that original point. You know, it depends on what the metric was. Part of. It was to provide a degree of security and stability on which nation building can happen. You know, one of the problems that lead to the sort of Space for Al Qaeda to form in Afghanistan after the you know left Sudan, for instance, one of the things that that that you had, I think to really take account of is the mission sort of had to change. We left. And really left Afghanistan in the mid nineties early in mid nineties and really, by about 1995 96 where the Taliban could come in, We left it as you know, we went, You know, the Soviets were out, Uh, the the space was open. There was a lot of room and one of the problems that we had was okay, so we've we've routed out Al Qaeda for you know, significant part. We've made it very hard for them to operate in this particular space and region. It didn't mean that, like the Hulk. On the network and others that were still part of this that the Taliban I mean, I've been studying the Taliban's communication and propaganda over, you know for But for a long time we've looked. We've got papers on this. I mean, they have been telling us who they are and what they're about. For years. There's a sort of an alliance with and support for Al Qaeda, at least giving them space and capacity and unfortunately In, you know, And I think this is my judgment and you know, shared by many colleagues and scholars, but we are significantly back to where frankly, we were. Around that time where it was, uh, a space where we didn't have the intelligence, the insight, the security environment, and that's really you know, that's a substantial problem. But were you surprised at how quickly the Taliban was able to come in and secure Afghanistan, and not even all the Americans were out of the country? I mean, that one could say, Well, look, you know, how are they able to do that? Well, again a work in progress. And this is where, you know? Yes, The optics in the execution of this sort of withdrawal were unquestionably terrible, Inexcusably terrible. Um The seeds for this, though, go back through multiple administrations. I mean, one of the things that happened and people may not be as as aware of. But you know, with the Trump administration, sort of short circuit, dealing directly with the Taliban and leaving the Afghan government out like that's a big deal. That sort of undercuts and undermines so You know there were a lot of factors involved in this. I think the biggest sort of failing that we see right now is just in the sort of nature in the execution of the withdraw and what it's left in its wake. And frankly, that's going to be years to. You know, we're going to see that sort of evolve over years. But look at the look at the new Afghan government under the Taliban look at who is part of that look at, but I mean people who we literally have on terrorist watch lists with, you know, $5 million bounty. He's on their head are now like, you know, Hakani is the secretary of the interior in Afghanistan like this. So when you look at things like that it is, I think a really, really very poor outcome tragic outcome all around most certainly for the people in Afghanistan who now had 20 years of trying to build create institutions, education. That's gone. All of it. Let me ask you this, then. Are you optimistic? Do you believe in that? The U. S may not have to go back. I mean, you just You just get your right about when you say Look who's in who's part of running the operation. Now, folks who have been very vocal about their disdain for the U. S. And and plotted or allegedly plotted in some attacks, so Is it possible that the U. S will have to go back to this region? Well, let me answer the first question. Am I optimistic? Um, In my professional judgment, Absolutely not. Absolutely not, You know, And I think it's unfortunate because there were over the years, you know, with said optimism and, you know a number like about 23 years ago, I was starting to have conversations about potentially having collaborations between Georgia State University and my students and the American University in Kabul. I mean, you know, none of all of it is gone. And you know, so and I can't put a strong enough point on that like that, So So do I think, like, are we going to see things immediately? You know, we're going to probably see some infighting between Al Qaeda and Isis and Khorasan SK or you've heard it referred to..

I have coached. People can create their own speeches. Okay you know. But i don't write it. I what i do. Is i help them write it because their stories that help them actually tell stories more than try to get up there and just recite facts. Yeah and so this next book. I guess you're passionate about it. The innovation What are some challenges. People have in bringing on innovation. What are some of the barriers are the stopgaps her. You know Right well there's you know there's a number of things you really kinda need to be comfortable with to be an innovator in like had mentioned before you have to be comfortable with change which basically means you have to be comfortable with risk and one of the things i teach. People do is how to get comfortable risk by taking some baby steps. Now you have to understand. I what a risk is a risk is all about losing something that has to be something that can be lost In order for something to be a risk. And so what i do is i teach people how to take some relatively non consequential risks so that they can start to begin to get comfortable.

"Challenge at the Supreme Court, once again by a vote of seven to to the justices rejected the third Republican attack on the landmark law that provides health insurance to 20 million people. The opinion did not deal with the merits of the case, but rather rule. The challengers didn't have the right to sue because they weren't injured by the now toothless individual mandate. This lack of standing was an issue. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas brought up in the oral arguments by posing several hypotheticals. Let's say Congress passes a law. Saying. Everybody has to mow their lawn once a week, and they even make a lot of findings about why that's a good thing. You know, it makes the country look neater. You get fresh air if you have to do that supports the lawnmower business, um and but defined for violating it is $00 do they have standing I assume that in most places there is no penalty for wearing a face mask or a mask during Covid. Um, but there is some degree of opprobrium if one does not wear in certain settings. Joining me is Neil King Kong for professor of Constitutional Law at the Georgia State University College of Law. Why a seven month wait to hand down this decision, which is 72 just 16 pages long. That's a great question. I wish I knew the answer. Maybe someday, the conference notes will tell us what was really going on. Because you're right. It's 7 to 2 decision and it's on a technicality. Really understanding And so why did it take so long? And you can only imagine the justices were actually going back and forth about the merits and then decided to instead resolve it on this jurisdictional grounds. You also tell us why the court decided as it did so it ruled that the parties who brought the case didn't have the authority the jurisdiction to bring the case. So in order to bring a case you have to be an actually injured party. So it can't be is that you just think Obamacare is unconstitutional or you think the government is doing something that violates the law That doesn't allow you to bring a lawsuit. You have to be actually personally harmed by the government's action. And then if you are, you can say I'm harmed and the government is acting unconstitutionally court. Please order remedy. And so what the court said in this case is that the plaintiffs there were two individuals and a set of 12 states. So, the Supreme Court said, you haven't been directly harmed by anything the federal government has done. And if you pay attention to what the substance of the case was about, it's easy to see how that was The case. What they were complaining about is that Congress in 2017 amended Obamacare. To remove the provisions imposing a penalty on anyone who didn't buy the required insurance. And so what you had was this odd situation of two individuals who were complaining that there's a requirement that they buy insurance, but there's no actual penalty or anything that happens to them if they don't go ahead and do it, so, the court said, you're not actually heart. And then the States made an even odder argument, saying that their costs of running their state would go up because they have to run these insurance programs that cover people under Obamacare. The problem is, once you eliminate the penalty for not signing up for it. It's hard to see how the state is being harmed. In fact, if that's their concern, you would think we're moving the penalty helps them. Because now people who don't want it aren't going to sign up for it to avoid a penalty, so if anything, it would reduce the state's costs. So, the Supreme Court said As the both of these parties, you're not personally injured. You're like anybody else who's just out there complaining that they don't like Obama care because you don't have a direct personal stake in this. You are not allowed to bring this lawsuit. The chief wrote the opinions of the court in the other obamacare decisions and got a lot of criticism from conservatives. Is it surprising that he handed off this decision to justice prior to right? So it may be that the chief has decided that he's gotten enough blowback from Obamacare. That may have something to do with it. The chief because he's in the majority would be the one who assigned the writing of this opinion. I suspect that because the opinion has to do with standing and not with any of the merits, it's an issue that even among the justices is considered kind of a boring technicality. So I don't think anyone was really lobbying hard to get to write this opinion. What did you think about Justice? Alito's dissent. He called it the third installment in our epic Affordable Care Act trilogy. So I just think it shows how contentious the issue is on the court can also sort of betrays that Justice Alito isn't really viewing this as a law issue. This is for some of the justices, the kind of policy issue that you might hear, debated and argued about the cable news shows and then It plays on that level with the justices, and I certainly think Justice Alito's depending opinion read for that way, it reads like it's written for that kind of an audience rather than your standard Supreme Court opinion audience is the cloud over Obamacare Gone now are the legal challenges behind us. Well, it's hard for me to say they're entirely behind us just because there is so much interest in it. And therefore there is so much money available for lawyers and groups that want to challenge it. So it's possible we'll hear more of it. I would say that I think this is the Supreme Court telling people we really don't want to hear about this anymore. Go away. We'll see if they take that advice, Neil. That's Neil Kinnock off of the Georgia State University College of Law Coming up next a class between gay rights and religious rights. This is Bloomberg.

CDC Issues Sweeping Temporary Halt On Evictions Nationwide Amid Pandemic
"Ready to distribute a potential Corona virus vaccine as soon as late October. The CDC has also issued an order to temporarily stop home evictions nationwide, which yes, sounds like it's not necessarily the agency's mandate. But the CDC is using authority from the Public Health Service Act of 1944 and making the case that evictions could increase the spread of covert 19. NPR's Selina Simmons. Duffin wondered if this was legal. A bold move. That's how health law professor Aaron Fu say. Brown of Georgia State University described this order from CDC and the way it uses the agency's legal authority. The regulations under the Public Health Service Act, provide the CDC the power to take certain action to control communicable disease, particularly across the state lines. The way the law was written, she says, enlists different examples such as inspection, fumigation, disinfection sanitation. Pest extermination, so the destruction of animals did you hear housing or evictions? They're not in there with the eviction order, she says. CDC is basically arguing. If you could take steps to prevent animals or other types of, you know, please from spreading infectious disease, then could you also take some steps to prevent people from being forced to crowd Since crowding? Help Spread Cove? It The order applies to people earning less than $100,000 a year if they say they would become homeless or move in with friends or family if evicted, and it wouldn't provide any financial relief to renters or landlords. That concerns Tia Cherie Gaynor, a political science professor at the University of Cincinnati. Someone can't afford to pay their rant. They're not going to be able to pay four months of rent at wants when this ends right when the moratorium is over. Congress would need to pass a law to provide that financial assistance. Whether this is legal or not, is up in the air. Legal aid groups across the country issued statements in response to the order, saying in large part, it's unclear what this means. We're still trying to figure it out. Many hailed the effort to halt evictions. But legal challenges are likely and may include lawsuits that argue CDC does not have the authority to do this. Those legal challenges, says health law professor Lindsay Wiley of American University could have implications that stretch far beyond housing and evictions. Ah, lot rides on whether judges decide this order is legal. Those decisions. Either way, whether they uphold it or strike it down are gonna have really big implications for the federal role in the pit, then take response going forward. For example, she says, if you get a decision, upholding this order that could embolden a future Biden administration issue a national mask mandate. On the other hand, if a judge strikes this down That could tie the hands of the federal government to take nationwide action to try to curb the spread of the virus. Whoever is in the White House, the order is set to go into effect tomorrow. Selina Simmons Duffin. NPR news Later today on all things considered, we've gotten usedto Wildfire season
Do Animals Laugh?
"If you've ever been close with a non human animal you may think it's obvious that they have senses of humor. Even if most of what they think is funny. Is You know but we set out to learn what science has to say about it. Have you ever tried to tell a joke to an animal? I've done it before I I talk to my dogs. Whatever but this this brain stuff and I'm Christian Sager. So here's the question. Can Animals laugh in some cases. This might sound ridiculous. There are many different types of laughter and generally speaking these types fall into two broad categories complex social laughter where you have to know the context or have a sense of to you know get it and laughter in response to stimulation like tickling some animals such as primates seem to have a sense of humor. Meaning they can respond to situations with a hand. That sounds eerily similar to laughter. You can read numerous stories about Koko. The gorilla allegedly making jokes in sign language and so on. Additionally when adult animals like dolphins or ravens play pranks they're indicating an understanding of humor but laughter itself seems more common than humans had originally thought rats had been laughing. They're furry little keystones off the dawn of recorded history but we only figured this out a few years back. It turns out rats like being tickled and when they're tickled they chirp at a range too for human ears to pick up. It's around fifty kilohertz. We know this. Thanks to the work of Jacques Pants. Skip and Jeffrey Bergdorf beginning in the late nineties at Bowling Green State University. And if we're talking about that second category of laughter. A positive localization associated with touch than the comedy. Floodgates may have just swung open. Dr Davila Ross has been gathering as much data as possible about the reactions. Various animals have to being tickled the list of animals. That make a vocal reaction when tickled include. Mir Cats camels dolphins dogs Al's penguins and more. So what's the explanation? Well according to Michael Owen and associate professor of psychology and neuroscience from Georgia State University. That's my Alma Mater. The case may be simple at least when applied to mammals. It's just a pleasant feeling evoked by touching laughter. It seems may well be millions of years old and existed before human beings. If you think about it we're sort of late to the joke and to be fair. Most scientists aren't calling the straight out laughter. Instead they're suggesting that these positive vocalisations or as Dr Davila Ross rights expressions of joy. And when we ask whether laughter is a sign of intelligence. Dr Pank Sep notes. That intelligence isn't a requirement for laughter. Instead he suggests maybe we should look at it from another direction. Perhaps play in any species can increase social intelligence as research continues. We're learning more and more about animals laughter and
Brett Cavanaugh, Supreme Court and Bloomberg discussed on
"Confirmation of Trump supreme court nominee Brett Cavanaugh could create the most conservative supreme court in generations with the court shifting to the right on abortion gay rights. Affirmative action federal regulatory, power and gun restrictions. But during his confirmation hearings Cavanaugh dodge question after question from democratic senators, even coining a term for his refusal to answer calling it nominee precedent. Here's an exchange between Democratic Senator Patrick layhee and Cavanaugh on presidential powers. Trump claims is an absolute right to pardon south. The question of self pardons is something I've never analyzed. It's a question. I have not written about it's a question. Therefore, that's a hypothetical question that I can't begin in. This context is a sitting judge and is a nominee. My guest is Neil Kinnock off a professor at Georgia State University college of law meal, what struck you about Kavanagh's answers. Well, he's being very careful. So the process proceeds with senators coming at him with sharp implements and him trying to apply anesthesia, and I'm afraid the result for for those of us watching feels like we've been lobotomize supreme court nominee seem to be getting more and more adept at not answering the top questions. So what's the point of four days of hearings kind of kabuki? Right. So the hope is among senators is the they will catch him and trip him up, and he'll say. Something substantive and his job is to try to run out the clock and not say anything that gives anybody reason to object to him. So he'll say precedents can't be overruled or much more importantly precedents. Cannot be revised revisited and rendered meaningless. Even though they're not formally overruled, and that's much more. The supreme court's usual way of doing business. I think precedent may have been the word most used by Cavanaugh and supreme court nominees use that all the time yet we saw judge Neil Gorsuch in its first year on the court provide the fifth vote to overturn a forty year old precedent and throw out mandatory union fees in public sector unions. So can we take a nominees saying he's going to follow precedent with more than a grain of salt? Of course, not when they say, they will follow precedent. They don't really mean they will follow it. They mean, they will respect it as precedent and Brown versus board of education. Overruled plus versus Ferguson a precedent and properly. So so not every president has to be adhered to. I can think of several that I would like to see overruled, but never should have been decided in the first place. They are still precedence. They entitled to some degree of respect.
