  • Federal judge blocks ban on sex reassignment surgeries for service members

A moment government judge blocked authorization of President Donald Trump's restriction on transgender people serving in the United States military Tuesday, discovering dynamic obligation benefit individuals confront generous mischief from the boycott.

Stone is challenging President Trump's policy banning transgender people from serving in the military.

Garbis's ruling prevents the government from denying funding for sex reassignment surgeries.

Immediately following those July 26 tweets, military leaders worked quickly to assuage some of their service members' concerns without directly contradicting Trump.

Russell Simmons Allegedly Sexually Assaulted 17-Year-Old as Brett Ratner Watched
When 17-year-old fashion model Keri Claussen Khalighi met Brett Ratner and Russell Simmons at a casting call , she was excited. He allegedly apologized to her and mentioned that he has two children. "I was horrified, because she's a good, dear person".

Trump's memo said the Department of Defense may not recruit transgender people and may not use federal funds to provide medical treatment, including sex-reassignment surgeries and medications.

The ACLU views the preliminary injunction as a win. A group of six active-duty transgender service members filed a challenge against it days later, claiming it violated their constitutional right to equal protection. The military is continuing to provide transition-related medical care.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, issued his own guidance the next day, saying there would be no immediate changes until further instructions were handed down from the president. The president's order might have also forced the expulsion of now serving members.

"The lack of any justification for the abrupt policy change, combined with the discriminatory impact to a group of our military service members who have served our country capably and honorably, can not possibly constitute a legitimate governmental interest", he wrote. "A capricious, arbitrary, and unqualified tweet of new policy does not trump the methodical and systematic review by military stakeholders qualified to understand the ramifications of policy changes".

And in a strong acknowledgment of the plaintiff's case, the judge wrote they "have demonstrated to the Court's satisfaction that they are likely to suffer imminent harm as a result of the Directives in the President's Memorandum".

Even though U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in Washington had already put the broad outlines of the proposal on hold in late October, her decision did not explicitly rule on whether the administration could stop paying for sex-reassignment surgeries.

Estimates vary widely about the number of transgender military members.

Trump had announced on Twitter in July that the government would not allow transgender individuals to serve in the military in any capacity.
