SEATTLE (AP) — The Latest on a federal court hearing in Seattle regarding President Donald Trump's ban on transgender people entering the military (all times local): 10:30 a.m. A federal judge in Seattle says she won't immediately consider President Donald Trump's new policy banning transgender people from serving in the military. U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman is one of four federal judges who have issued orders blocking Trump's decision last year to overturn an Obama-era directive allowing transgender troops to serve openly. On Friday, Trump issued a new policy following a Pentagon review, saying transgender troops would be banned with limited exceptions.
