2018-05-12

Transgender military-ban plaintiffs in Doe v. Trump—the first lawsuit to challenge the Trump-Pence ban—filed a cross-motion for summary judgment May 11 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, with assistance from the National Center for Lesbian Rights ( NCLR ) and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders ( GLAD ).

The plaintiffs' motion asserts that facts show the ban, including the March 23 Mattis implementation plan, violates their Equal Protection and Due Process rights, and that the court should provide permanent declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent the Trump-Pence ban from ever being implemented.

Said plaintiffs also filed a separate motion May 11 opposing the administration's motions to dismiss the case and to dissolve the nationwide preliminary injunction issued Oct. 30, 2017, by District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
