Appeals Court Rebuffs Delay In Transgender Military Enlistments

The Washington Blade reports:

The first federal appeals court has rebuffed the Trump administration’s request for additional delay in transgender enlistments in the U.S. military, setting up potential action on the issue from the U.S. Supreme Court by the end of the year.

The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the U.S. Justice Department’s request for a stay on U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis’s decision against Trump’s transgender military ban as it pertains to enlistments.

The simple two-page order without much discussion announces the Fourth Circuit has rejected the administration’s stay “upon consideration” of the briefs of the parties as well as friend-of-the-court briefs in the case.
