Appellate Court Rules Texas Book Ban Unconstitutional

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that a Texas law aimed at removing sexually explicit books from school libraries is unconstitutional. The federal appeals court determined that the law to rate books violates free speech rights. The law required booksellers to use a rating system to classify books based on their sexual content. Most of the books targeted dealt with gender identity, sexual orientation, and sexuality. Booksellers, authors, publishers, and two bookstores brought the lawsuit.
