Update on Status of Serafine v Branaman

On November 28, 2016, based on the opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in the Serafine v. Branaman case, the federal district court ordered the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists to pay Serafine $48,092.25 for her successful enforcement of her First Amendment civil rights under the U.S. Constitution.

The court also entered an injunction against the Board’s further enforcement of those portions of the Psychologists’ Licensing Act that had been struck down as unconstitutional.

With this ruling, the Serafine v. Branaman case is now formally closed.
