news update.

Just days after military recruiters were told they must accept applications from gays and lesbians; the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a temporary stay on a moratorium of the seventeen year “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT)” Law. The Pentagon can once again enforce DADT. The U.S. department of Justice had filed an emergency appeal with the ninth circuit on behalf of the pentagon, after U.S. District Judge, Virginia Phillips ruled on October 12th that the law is unconstitutional and enforcement of the law must stop.
