(CBS NEWS) – A federal court in Washington is barring President Trump from changing the government’s policy on military service by transgender people.

Mr. Trump announced in an August memo that he intended to reverse course on a 2016 policy that allowed troops to serve openly as transgender individuals. He said he would order a return to the policy prior to June 2016, under which servicemembers could be discharged for being transgender.
