DADT might be on its way out!!
http://voices.washingtonpost.com/federal...id=topnews

Quote:U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips ruled Tuesday that the policy "infringes the fundamental rights" of military service members and prospective service members and violates their rights to due process and freedom of speech.

Her ruling bars the Pentagon from enforcing or applying the policy and orders the military to immediately suspend and discontinue any investigations, discharges or other proceedings related to potential violations of the law.

To overturn the injunction, government lawyers would have to appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and ask that the current policy be allowed to continue while the appellate judges consider the case....

Hell yes! It's about time DADT gets overturned and we don't spend millions firing servicemen and women and training new ones solely because they're attracted to the same sex. ^_^

Re: DADT might be on its way out!!
Seeing as it was unconstitutional to begin with and thus should never have become a policy in the first place. Woohoo! I saw that in the paper this morning and thought "yay".
