White House Asks Supreme Court To Fast-Track Ruling On Transgender Military Ban
The Department of Justice asked the Supreme Court on Friday to bypass lower courts and rule quickly on its ban of most transgender military members.
It's not the first time that the administration has asked the Supreme Court to intercede in the appeals process. In January, it petitioned the Supreme Court to fast-track cases challenging the Trump administration's plans to end DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The federal program protects young immigrants from deportation. That request was denied â€” but just weeks ago, the Justice Department asked again.
For a case to bypass lower courts, it must be of "imperative public importance" â€” important enough to warrant a change in the process it's reviewed by appellate courts, and important enough "to require immediate determination in this court," according to Supreme Court rules....
The proposed policy in question was sent to the president in February by Defense Secretary James Mattis. Those rules would disqualify service members "who require or have undergone gender transition." Individuals without a history of gender dysphoria would be required to serve under their biological sex.
That proposal replaced President Trump's plan to ban all transgender military members, which he announced via Twitter in 2017.

Definition of gender dysphoria
: a distressed state arising from conflict between a person's gender identity and the sex the person has or was identified as having at birth
The question is how would someone prove that someone is not suffering from dysphoria?
Conclusion: they are all different shades of the same color!
