Equality California filed a complaint against Trump's trans military ban

Equality California launched a lawsuit against the ban for trans people to serve openly within the military.

It represents seven transgender plaintiffs: four service members and three who have sought to enlist.

"It principally presses claims that the ban unlawfully discriminates against transgender people on the basis of their gender identity; impinges upon transgender people’s fundamental rights by penalizing and stigmatizing them for expressing a fundamental aspect of their personal identity; and violates the right of transgender service members to openly express who they are," according to an Equality California press release. "It states that the ban is arbitrary, without a rational basis, and motivated by animus against transgender people."

This is the fourth trial against this ban. The National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLBTQ Advocates and Defenders had filed a lawsuit on August 9. This was followed by the one filed by OutServe-SLDN and Lambda Legal on August 28, and another trial launched by ACLU.
