"A capricious, arbitrary, and unqualified tweet of new policy does not trump the methodical and systematic review by military stakeholders," Judge Marvin J. Garbis wrote.
The Golden State will put its considerable weight behind a case challenging the legality of Trump's impulsive ban on trans service members.
A federal judge in D.C. ruled that military members challenging the ban were likely to succeed.
The administration says legal challenges to the ban are "premature" because, it claims, trans service members haven't been harmed by it yet.
Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate he advised against the ban and would continue to do so.
The trans whisteblower was offered a fellowship at Harvard before a conservative outcry helped yank it away. It wasn't the right job for her to begin with, writes former service member Amanda Kerri.
The Republican senator sticks his neck out for transgender service members, but it may not be enough to stopTrump's cruel order.
