After SisterSong sued to block the bill in federal court, a federal district court judge sided with the organizaiton. When the state appealed the case to the 11th Circuit, the appeals court waited on giving an opinion until the U.S. Supreme Court could deliver its opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson.

The 11th Circuit issued an opinion on July 20 vacating the lower court injunction.
