Quick ruling sought on trans troops


WASHINGTON — The Trump administra­tion Saturday asked the

Supreme Court to issue an unusually quick ruling on the Pentagon’s policy of restrictin­g military service by transgende­r people.

It’s the fourth time the administra­tion has sought to bypass lower courts that have blocked some of its more controvers­ial proposals and push the high court to weigh in. The administra­tion says the court should step in before an appeals court rules because the case “involves an issue of imperative public importance: the authority of the U.S. military to determine who may serve in the Nation’s armed forces.”
