A federal judge in Texas ruled on Nov. 11 that President Joe Biden's administration had wrongly interpreted an Affordable Care Act provision as barring health care providers from discriminating against gay and transgender people, Reuters reports. The ruling by  U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk in Amarillo, came in a class action lawsuit by two doctors represented by the America First Legal Foundation, set up by former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller.
