Judge Stop President Trump's Transgender Military Ban

Another federal judge has halted a proposed transgender military ban, expanding on an initial ruling against the policy by President Donald Trump's administration.

"A surprising declaration by the President and president of the United States through Twitter that "the United States Government won't acknowledge or enable transgender people to serve in any way in the USA military" surely can be viewed as stunning the situation being what it is", Garbis composed, in the wake of installing screen shots of the tweets pages prior.

The White House later issued guidance to Secretary of Defense James Mattis who noted in his interim August guidance to the Department of Defense that existing transgender service members with a diagnosis of gender dysmorphia from a military medical provider will continue receiving paid treatment, but added that new sex reassignment surgeries will not be paid for after March 2018.

The ACLU's lawsuit was filed on behalf of the ACLU of Maryland and six current members of the armed forces who are transgender: Petty Officer First Class Brock Stone, Senior Airman John Doe, Airman First Class Seven Ero George, Petty Officer First Class Teagan Gilbert, Staff Sergeant Kate Cole, and Technical Sergeant Tommie Parker.

The preliminary injunction prohibits the president's policies until the lawsuit is resolved.

In October, another federal judge, US District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in Washington, barred Trump's administration from proceeding with the plans to exclude transgender people from military service.

Charlie Rose suspended following sexual harassment allegations
Two women who worked for Mr Rose said he walked naked in front of them, and another said she was groped by him at a party. PBS , CBS and Bloomberg , which also employs Rose , said there was no record of sexual harassment complaints against him.

Trump sent an August memo directing the Pentagon to extend indefinitely a ban on transgender individuals joining the military, and gave Defence Secretary Jim Mattis six months to come up with a policy on "how to address" those who are now serving.

"Today's filing signals that the Trump administration is more committed than ever to demeaning and stigmatizing transgender service members and transgender Americans", said GLAD Transgender Rights Project Director Jennifer Levi.

The U.S. Justice Department lawyers had asked Garbis' to dismiss the lawsuit against the ban because the ban is on hold pending a Defense Department review, meaning that the military isn't now discharging active-duty trans service members nor is it denying them transition-related medical care.
