“Transgender men & women who proudly serve our country (and those who wish to do so!) sacrifice to keep all of us safer. They are willing to pay the ultimate price to do so. They deserve peace of mind and security.”
Stressful and disruptive indeed!
(Discrimination, however, absolutely disrupts cohesion.)
It’s been proven wrong, every time. #TransMilitaryBan
#TransMilitaryBan negatively impacts WA’s ability to protect its natural resources through National Guard.
As if our clients haven’t suffered enough harms in waiting 240+ days in limbo! 😠 #TransMilitaryBan
Justice Pechman reminds them that they failed to reveal who those experts were. “You lost that motion.” #TransMilitaryBan
“Is there a procedural rule you can point me to that says I should accept late filings ... One that I’m bound by?”
And—moot harms? Nah. Our clients know EXACTLY how harmful every single step of this fight has been.
Reminder: The late filings from Friday are not part of this case, and they were simply a dressing-up of the same old 💩!
Judge Pechman: Don’t service people get pregnant? Have post-partum depression? Isn’t this just another issue that the military just has to deal with? #TransMilitaryBan
Judge Pechman re: the government’s argument on gender dysphoria as a medical condition, which they did NOT submit in documents. 🔥🔥🔥
Let’s say that again: She has to PRETEND TO BE A MAN to keep her job. 🙅🏽♀️
Apparently, @TheJusticeDept has been using the wrong font (too small) against federal rules, to fit more into their briefs.
She asks them to redraft and submit, following the rules.
(w o w)
We will NOT be coming back to re-argue. She will take the new filings and give us a decision.
Court is now in recess. #TransMilitaryBan
Transgender service members risk their lives to defend the Constitution. Lambda Legal will fight to ensure they are protected under the laws they defend.
