U.S. Court Orders Review Of Judge's Ruling To End Trump's Ban On Transgender Military Personnel

President Donald Trump has achieved a victory in his effort to ban most transgender people from the military. According to Reuters, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday set aside a ruling by U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman in Seattle. Judge Pechman's ruling had said the ban likely violated the constitutional rights of transgender service members and recruits. Without ruling on the merits, a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based appeals court said Pechman did not give the military’s judgment enough deference, and ordered her to give it more. That finding could strengthen Trump’s position, though the government still had the burden of justifying his policy.
