From News Channel 9: President Joe Biden’s Title IX policy, which expands protections to LGBTQ+ people, was put on hold Monday in six additional states.

 

The Associated Press reported U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves temporarily blocked the Biden administration’s new policy.

 

The media outlet noted the federal judge referred to the regulation as “arbitrary in the truest sense of the word” in granting a preliminary injunction blocking it in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

 

The ruling comes just a few days after another federal judge temporarily blocked the new rule from taking effect in Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi and Montana.
