MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Parents of transgender teens have filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn an Alabama law that makes it a crime for doctors to treat trans youth under 19 with puberty blockers or hormones to help affirm their gender identity.

The new lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Montgomery federal court several days after two previous lawsuits were with redrawn.

Plaintiffs in the suit are four families with children who are transgender, ranging from ages 12 to 17, two doctors and a clergy member.
