!! Federal judge issues injunction blocking Trump’s ban on transgender military service !!

Buzzfeed News has reported that US District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly (YAAASSS, to that name!) issued an injunction suspending Trump’s order and reinstated a timeline to let transgender people join the military starting in 2018:

Shannon Minter, legal director of National Center for Lesbian Rights, which is representing the plaintiffs, has called the order a “complete victory.” Judge Kollar-Kotelly’s order does not block a policy concerning gender reassignment surgeries, and dismissed those claims. But Minter notes that an interim policy by Defense Sec. James Mattis still requires the military to provide transgender troops with those medical services.

WERK IT, COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY! We need more judges like you in this world!
