SEATTLE Lawsuits filed Monday are challenging President Trump’s ban on transgender people in the military.
The ban would prohibit transgender people from joining the military and would have an effect on those already openly serving.
Estimates on the number of transgender people currently on active duty who could be affected by the ban range from about 1,300 to almost 9,000.
Seattle interests were the first to sue Trump over a partial Muslim ban.
