via Judge Rules Military Must Start Admitting Transgender Troops on Jan. 1 in New Blow to Trump Ban

President Donald Trump’s efforts to ban openly transgender troops from serving in the U.S. military has been dealt with another blow after a federal judge ruled that such recruits must be allowed in starting Jan. 1.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly clarified on Monday a previous injunction issued in October that the U.S. military must follow former President Barack Obama’s memorandum last year, which paved the way for transgender troops to be recruited.
