Another Appeals Court Rejects Delay In Trans Military Enlistments

The Washington Blade 

In the second blow to President Trump’s transgender military ban from a federal appeals court, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has rejected a request from the Trump administration to extend the delay on transgender military enlistments beyond Jan 1.

The three-judge panel on Friday denied the U.S. Justice Department request for a stay based on the several factors, including that the U.S. government is unlikely to succeed its appeals of court orders against President Trump’s transgender military ban.

The decision also takes note transgender people “are already serving openly in the military” and credits their service to the country.
