Judge rules lawsuit over anti-trans Trump ban will go to trial
2018-04-18

A federal judge in Seattle rejected the Trump administration's claim that its "new" plan to ban transgender people from serving openly in the U.S. Armed Services is different from its 2017 directive, Bloomberg reported.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman ruled that the two anti-transgender initiatives are basically the same, and decided that a lawsuit connected to the newer order must go to trial.

"The court wants to expose this bigoted ban for all of its ugliness at trial, and we are happy to oblige. If it's a full record the judge wants, then it's a full record we will give her," Lambda Legal Senior Attorney Natalie Nardecchia said in a statement. "We look forward to putting the capriciousness and cruelty of this discriminatory ban against transgender people on trial, where it can be relegated for good to the trash heap of history, alongside other vile military policies that discriminated based on race, sex, and sexual orientation."
