A federal judge on Wednesday affirmed her injunction preventing President Trump’s transgender military policy from taking effect remains in place days after the Pentagon released a memo to implement the policy.
In a three-page order, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia wrote that “defendants were incorrect in claiming that there was no longer an impediment to the military’s implementation of the [transgender policy] in this case.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Asked whether the order will affect plans to implement the policy April 12, a Pentagon spokeswoman said the department is “consulting with the Department of Justice on next steps.”
Judge Kollar-Kotelly tells the Trump administration it may NOT implement the ban on transgender military service—her injunction remains in place (for now). https://t.co/Lc71ONeJ22 h/t @chrisjohnson82 pic.twitter.com/eEzplalmMk

“Judge Kollar-Kotelly’s ruling today makes crystal clear that her order enjoining the ban from going into effect remains in place. As a result, the government may not take any steps to institute a ban on transgender troops.” —@shannonminter5 https://t.co/iKa8Mbd0T6 pic.twitter.com/iOrFcB4RAG
