The army can no longer prevent HIV-positive members from becoming officers


The US military must now allow HIV-positive soldiers to become officers, a judge ordered Wednesday, reversing policies that previously blocked promotion.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema’s order resolved a 2018 lawsuit by granting the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, Bloomberg reported.

Summary judgment allowed the plaintiff to win the case without going to trial.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
