A federal judge on Monday rejected the Trump administration’s request to dismiss a lawsuit against the transgender military ban and lift the injunction blocking the ban from taking effect.

In an opinion issued Monday, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote that the transgender troop policy outlined by Defense Secretary James Mattis in March was not different from President Trump’s plan to ban transgender people from the military.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Instead, at a fundamental level, the Mattis Implementation Plan is just that — a plan that implements the president’s directive that transgender people be excluded from the military,” wrote Kollar-Kotelly, an appointee of former President Clinton.

“Nothing in this Memorandum Opinion represents a final adjudication of whether defendants’ actions were constitutional. The court merely holds that whatever legal relevance the Mattis Implementation Plan might have, it has not fundamentally changed the circumstances of this lawsuit such that plaintiffs’ claims should be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, or that the need for the court’s preliminary injunction has dissipated.”

The opinion came in a lawsuit filed by the National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) on behalf of five unnamed service members and two recruits.

“The Trump administration’s arguments to dismiss our lawsuit and move forward with the trans military ban are full of sweeping generalizations and false stereotypes about transgender people,” Jennifer Levi, GLAD’s transgender rights project director, said in a statement “It’s clear Judge Kollar-Kotelly isn’t buying it—and neither should anyone else.”

  1. Every single one of these “Activist”, globalist, Obama Judges must be removed from the Bench. They are a purposeful impediment to the “rule of law” and need to be culled from the Judiciary altogether. No more politically correct, cancerous Laws & Policies. Once they are removed, sanity will return and “common sense”, logic and reason will prevail once again. Time for these planted, globalist, judges to hit the road!

  2. As per prior precident the President should move forward with his decision and refuse the judges ruling. It is his decision by law.

  3. Too many of these transgender people only want to join so that the government will pay for all the expense involved in a sex change operation. They want to do a couple years of service and then get out after they’ve gotten all their expensive medical requirements met. I believe that being a transgender is more of a mental health issue than it is a real issue and therefore they should not be allowed to join the military. If the judge forces the military to take them in then they should NOT be allowed to have any of the transgender medical treatment that means hormone therapy & surgery of any kind that would be part of the change. If they want the treatment then they can save money from their military paycheck and pay for the surgery after they get out of the military. The mental instability of transgender people has been proven and therefore a transgender person should not be allowed to join the military.
