Trump's government seeks quick ruling on transgender troops case

Francisco asked the nine justices on Friday to circumvent that process, saying the administration can't afford to wait for lower courts to decide, the Washington Post reported Friday.

The Obama administration chose to allow transgender individuals to serve in uniform, sparking a debate among military policy experts, though the new policy stance was not set to take effect until July 2017, six months after the end of Obama's tenure in office.

After the Trump administration asked the supreme court to issue an unusually quick ruling on the Pentagon's policy of restricting military service by transgender people, critics said the request was likely only to complicate a deteriorating relationship between the president and the federal judiciary.

Other recent cases marked for speed-up involve a programme that shields young immigrants from deportation, a climate change lawsuit, and a lawsuit over a citizenship question on the 2020 census. At an especially sensitive moment for the Supreme Court, the Trump administration is "forcing it into a minefield that many justices would nearly surely prefer to avoid", Matz said.

"The decisions imposing those injunctions are wrong, and they warrant this Court's immediate review", Francisco wrote.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a frequent target of criticism by President Donald Trump, is involved in three of the cases.

Black Friday early United Kingdom gaming deals, including PS4, Nintendo and Xbox
This will end up being one of the better deals, but we wait eagerly to see if Amazon will have a better PS4 Pro deal tomorrow. Red Dead Redemption has been on discount too, but it's going like hot potatoes so you will have to watch back for more offers.

Earlier this month, the administration asked the high court to fast-track cases on Trump's decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca), which shields from deportation young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

The Trump administration has taken an aggressive posture when lower courts have ruled against it on important issues. One famous past example is when the Nixon administration went to court to try to prohibit the publication of the Pentagon Papers, the secret history of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war.

The government's appeals of those rulings had been moving forward. The Supreme Court denied that request. He wants them to hear the case in the current term, which began in October and will be end in June or July of 2019.

"The President's hateful ban is purpose-built to humiliate our fearless transgender members of the military who serve with honor and dignity", she added.

Several lower courts ruled that the new policy was essentially the same as Mr Trump's failed attempt to bring in an outright ban on transgender troops, and the issue was referred to regional appeal courts. The District of Columbia federal court likewise refused to lift its identical injunction on August 6 and the Central District of California did the same on September 18. Coming the day after the president turned a Thanksgiving message to troops into a complaint about his own losses in federal court, it is clear the administration is growing ever more desperate to undermine the law and insert prejudice and hate into our armed forces.
