Document: Court Dismisses President Trump as Party in Transgender Service Member Ban Case

On Aug. 25 2017, President Trump ordered the U.S. government to not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in the U.S. military. Two plaintiffs, Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, subsequently filed a lawsuit seeking to block the memorandum and sought a preliminary injunction. The court granted the preliminary injunction in Oct. 2017.

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colombia issued two rulings on Aug. 6 in the case of Doe v. Trump.
