She was confirmed by the United States Senate on October 21, 1998, and received her commission on October 22, 1998. On March 14, 2014, Judge Trauger issued a preliminary injunction ordering Tennessee to recognize the marriages of three same-sex couples consummated out-of-state. In her ruling, Judge Trauger did not directly hold Tennessee's ban unconstitutional, but stated that, "At some point in the future, likely with the benefit of additional precedent from circuitcourts and, perhaps, the Supreme Court, the court will be asked to make a final ruling on theplaintiffs’ claims. At this point, all signs indicate that, in the eyes of the United StatesConstitution, the plaintiffs’ marriages will be placed on an equal footing with those ofheterosexual couples and that proscriptions against same-sex marriage will soon become afootnote in the annals of American history".
