The Trump administration was handed another loss Wednesday evening in a case surrounding its abrupt cuts to grants for organizations participating in a federal teen pregnancy prevention program.

Judge Catherine Blake in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the administration’s decision to end grants two years early for organizations participating in the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program was “arbitrary” and “capricious,” and that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would have to process applications for continued funding for the three groups involved in the lawsuit.

The article goes on to state the following:

It marks the third time a federal judge has ruled against the Trump administration for cutting the grants, which were supposed to end in 2020.

This case was brought by Democracy Forward, which represented the Baltimore City Health Department.

“This ruling means that Baltimore City students will continue to receive evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention education delivered by teachers specially trained to teach these important curricula,” Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen said in a statement Thursday.
