U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has issued a preliminary injunction against the Trump Administration’s ban on transgender people serving in the military, USA Today reports. The preliminary injunction is in effect while the court continues to review the case.
However, the judge denied the plaintiff’s motion to block the ban on funds for gender reassignment surgery.
Trump had previously announced in a memo that he planned to reverse a 2016 policy implemented by the Obama Administration that allowed troops to serve openly as transgender individuals.
