ORDERS IN PENDING CASES
18A625 TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF U.S., ET AL. V. KARNOSKI, RYAN, ET AL.
The application for stay presented to Justice Kagan and by
her referred to the Court is granted, and the District Courts
December 11, 2017 order granting a preliminary injunction is
stayed pending disposition of the Governments appeal in the
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and
disposition of the Governments petition for a writ of
certiorari, if such writ is sought. If a writ of certiorari is
sought and the Court denies the petition, this order shall
terminate automatically. If the Court grants the petition for a
writ of certiorari, this order shall terminate when the Court
enters its judgment.
Justice Ginsburg, Justice Breyer, Justice Sotomayor, and
Justice Kagan would deny the application.

They would not have issued this temporary stay if they didn’t have the votes for the case in the USSC.
The 9th Circus has to render a decision, which can then be appealed to SCOTUS.
Me for having a detached retina when I was 13 that was dealt with surgically and never troubled me again...
How did Bader Ginsburg do anything. Isn’t she bed ridden?
Where was RBG when the tally was taken?
So males will have to wear male uniforms and females will have to wear female uniforms? wow... what a controversial policy for the military.
