Lawsuits Filed to Block Transgender Military Ban

Washington, D. C.

On Friday, the president reimplemented a formal ban restricting transgender individuals from serving in the military. Former President Barack Obama lifted the ban last year. In response the Trump Administration’s action, two lawsuits were filed Monday. 

In the first suit, five transgender service members, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, argue the ban is unconstitutional and discriminatory. In a separate lawsuit, Lamda Legal and OutServe- SLDN, filed on behalf of two transgender individuals who want to serve in the military and one who is currently in uniform, also cited concerns related to the constitutionality of the Administration’s action.
