The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled to allow the Trump administration to enforce restrictions on transgender personnel in the military. President Trump's ban was blocked by several courts last year, but the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to lift the injunctions that had rejected the restrictions. The controversial policy first banned transgender people from serving in the U.S. military "in any capacity," then was later amended to ban transgender people who "may require substantial medical treatment." The ruling means that the restrictions can be enforced while a case proceeds to determine the policy's long-term fate.
