Case Summary

On September 5, 2017, three named and two anonymous transgender service members and a transgender rights nonprofit filed this lawsuit against the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, and other federal officials in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The case was transferred to the Eastern District that same day.

On September 5, 2017, three named and two anonymous transgender service members and a transgender rights nonprofit filed this lawsuit against the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, and other federal officials in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The case was transferred to the Eastern District that same day. The plaintiffs, represented by the National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, sought declaratory and injunctive relief.

In June 2016, the Department of Defense (“DOD”) announced it would implement a new policy allowing transgender people to serve openly in the United States military. In reliance on this policy change, many transgender individuals came out to their chain of command without incident. On July 26, 2017, President Trump changed course, announcing on Twitter that the United States Government would no longer allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. The plaintiffs challenged the constitutionality of a directive issued by President Trump to the DOD and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on August 25, 2017 that formalized this policy. The directive required the departments to exclude transgender people from federal military service, ban the accession of transgender people into the U.S. military, and prohibit the funding of sex reassignment surgical procedures as part of health care for transgender service members. The plaintiffs sought a court declaration that the directive was unconstitutional as well as an injunction on the enforcement of the directive; they also sought attorney’s fees.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged that the defendants’ August 25, 2017 directive discriminated against the plaintiffs by excluding them from military service and denying them equal health benefits based on their sex and transgender status, in violation of the Equal Protection component of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment. The plaintiffs argued that the discrimination was unconstitutional because it lacked a rational basis, was arbitrary, could not be justified by a rational government interest, and was not narrowly tailored to advance a compelling government interest. The plaintiffs also alleged that the directive would deprive the plaintiffs of their right to privacy and their protected interests in continued military service without any rational basis, in violation of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment. Finally, the plaintiffs alleged that the directive violated the plaintiffs’ rights of free speech and expression under the First Amendment by impermissibly restricting, punishing, and chilling speech that would identify the plaintiffs as transgender people.

On October 2, 2017, the plaintiffs filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on enforcement of the directive, alleging that enforcement would impose irreparable harm on the plaintiffs by violating their constitutional rights and by sending a damaging public message that transgender people are not fit to serve in the military. On October 23, 2017, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss the case for lack of jurisdiction and failure to state a claim.

On December 22, 2017, Judge Jesus G. Bernal denied the motion to dismiss and granted the preliminary injunction. The preliminary injunction enjoined the defendants from excluding individuals from military service on the basis that they are transgender; it also prohibited them from denying access to medically necessary treatment on a timely basis, or otherwise subjecting individuals to adverse treatment or differential terms of service on the basis that they are transgender.

The President issued a new memorandum on March 23, 2018 to revoke his August 25, 2017 memorandum and allow the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Homeland Security to implement a new policy. In light of the changed circumstances, the defendants filed a motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction on the same day. They claimed the challenge to the 2017 memorandum was moot because the new policy did not categorically exclude transgender individuals from military service, but only disqualified individuals with a certain medical condition. The plaintiffs filed an opposition on April 25, 2018 arguing that the new policy discriminated in the same way as its predecessor.

On September 18, 2018, Judge Bernal denied the defendants’ motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction. 331 F. Supp. 3d 990, 993 (C.D. Cal. 2018). The defendants appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit on November 16, 2018. On December 19, 2018, the Ninth Circuit ordered that proceedings in the case be held in abeyance pending a decision in a related case, Karnoski v. Trump, also in this Clearinghouse.

On December 28, 2018, the defendants filed an ex parte motion to continue with the oral argument scheduled for January 7, 2019 in light of lapse of appropriations to the DOJ. Three days later, Judge Bernal granted the motion and the hearing on defendant's motion to stay the preliminary injunction pending the appeal was continued until January 28, 2019.

However, in Karnoski v. Trump, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to grant a Trump administration request to lift injunctions blocking the policy while challenges continue in lower courts. 139 S.Ct. 950 (Jan 22, 2019). The same day, the Supreme Court denied the petition for writ of certiorari before judgment to the Ninth Circuit. 139 S.Ct. 946 (Jan 22, 2019).

Because the Supreme Court granted the defendants' motion to stay the preliminary injunction pending appeal, back in the district court, Judge Bernal denied the defendants' pending motion for stay as moot and cancelled the hearing scheduled for January 28, 2019.

A new case schedule was set, but on May 23, 2019, Judge Bernal issued an order grating plaintiffs' motion to vacate the current case schedule and vacating the hearing set for June 3, 2019. 2019 WL 7840668 (C.D. Cal.).

On July 26, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a notice of voluntary dismissal as to defendant Donald Trump. The case continued against the defendants the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Navy, Acting Secretary of the Army, Acting Secretary of the Air Force, and Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

The Ninth Circuit issued an order on August 26, 2019. This order discharged the December 19, 2018 order holding the case in abeyance. The order granted the joint motion to remand. The order also vacated the district court's order denying the defendant's motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction pending any appeal. The preliminary injunction was stayed pending the district court’s reconsideration of

defendants’ motion to dissolve the injunction. 2019 WL 6125075 (9th Circ. Aug 26, 2019). The case was remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the Ninth Circuit's decision in Karnoski v. Trump, 926 F.3d 1180 (9th Cir. 2019).

On October 7, 2019, the court held a status conference before Judge Bernal. The December 22, 2017 preliminary injunction was dissolved, and it was agreed that the plaintiffs would file an amended complaint. The plaintiffs and the intervenors both filed their first amended complaints four days later. The amended complaint did not name Donald Trump as defendant, and the complaint addressed the Transgender Military ban that went into effect on April 12, 2019. The amended complaint asked the court to preliminarily and permanently enjoin the defendants from enforcing a policy that excludes transgender people from serving or enlisting in the military.

Judge Bernal issued an order officially dissolving the preliminary injunction on October 23, 2019.

The parties jointly filed a stipulation on February 28, 2020 for an order to suspend the case schedule and partially stay the case pending resolution of discovery issues in the related Karnoski case. Three days later, Judge Bernal approved the stipulation, suspended the case schedule and partially stayed the case pending the resolution of discovery issues in Karnoski.

As of July 2020, the case remains partially stayed.
