A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order against the infamous “drag ban" in Tennessee.
According to USA Today, U.S. District Judge Thomas Parker said the law as written is too vague and leaves the door open for differing outcomes based on a person's assessment of what is, and isn't, obscene.
"A law is unconstitutionally vague if individuals of common intelligence must necessarily guess at its meaning and differ as to its application," Parker wrote in the 15-page decision, USA Today reported.
The law was to go into effect this past Saturday.
The lawsuit against the new law was brought by Friends of George’s, a Memphis-based LGBTQ theater group.
“If Tennessee wishes to exercise its police power in restricting speech it considers obscene, it must do so within the constraints and framework of the United States Constitution,” Parker added in his ruling. “The Court finds that, as it stands, the record here suggests that when the legislature passed this Statute, it missed the mark.”
