CASE ENTRY

Doe v. Shanahan

In 2017, President Trump tweeted that transgender individuals would no longer be allowed to serve in the military. (The gov’t now says some can; plaintiffs say there is still a total ban.) Four district courts issued nationwide preliminary injunctions barring the military from enforcing the policy while lawsuits challenging it proceed. D.C. Circuit: One of those injunctions is now dissolved; courts should defer to military officials’ “considered professional judgment.”
