Challenging the Ban

We filed Doe v. Trump on August 9, 2017 – the first lawsuit to challenge the ban, and the first to win a nationwide preliminary injunction against it.

Two months later, we joined Stockman v. Trump, another lawsuit challenging the ban, brought on behalf of Equality California.

Watch this Teen Vogue interview with our attorneys and some of our trans military ban plaintiffs.


Two other lawsuits challenging the ban are also working their way through the courts: Stone v. Trump brought by the ACLU and Karnoski v. Trump brought by Lambda Legal.

So far, our cases fighting the ban have been winning at every level, but we have a long road ahead.

We won’t stop fighting until the ban is gone for good.
