On Monday, the Trump administration applied to the Supreme Court for an emergency stay of a district court order in litigation related to the transgender servicemember ban. A district court ordered the government to produce a log of evidence it believes is subject to presidential communications privilege. The government argues that a 2004 case should protect the government from doing so. The full application is below.

Note: The government withdrew this application on Sept. 17. For more details, read the withdrawal letter.
