Donald Trump sued over plan to ban transgenders from the military by Labour Unions

President Donald Trump, On Monday 27 August 2017, was sued twice by the by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Human Rights Campaign over his plan to ban transgender soldiers from the United States military.

The law suits by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Human Rights Campaign, filed in federal courts in Baltimore and Seattle, claim Trump’s plan violates the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution.

The groups seek court orders barring enforcement of the ban and preventing transgender service members from being discharged, blocked from promotion or denied medical care.

The ACLU says, the ban is "purely political, reflecting a desire to placate legislators and advisers who bear animus and moral disapproval toward men and women who are transgender."

The Maryland suit was assigned to U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis, an appointee of President George H. W. Bush. The Seattle case hasn’t been assigned yet and no hearings have been scheduled.
