On Monday, October 30, 2017, a federal court partially blocked President Trump’s plan to bar transgender individuals from serving in the military while this case is under review by the court. The court found that the portion of the new policy prohibiting transgender recruits from enlisting and calling for the discharge of current transgender service members likely violates their due process rights. The court, however, also dismissed claims challenging the policy’s ban on using military resources to pay for sex reassignment surgery because none of the plaintiffs were affected by that provision.
