"Don't Ask Don't Tell" Marches On...

With it becoming less & less likely that DADT will be repealed in
the lame duck session of Congress, The United States Supreme
Court has denied Log Cabin Republicans' request to reinstate a
world-wide injunction against 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' As a result,
servicemembers will continue to be investigated & discharged until
Log Cabin Republicans v. USA is under appeal. Arguments are due
to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in February.

We are disappointed by the Court's ruling to deny our application to vacate the stay by the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. With the likelihood of Congress repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' fading with each passing day, judicial relief continues to be perhaps the most viable avenue for ending this unconstitutional policy. We and Log Cabin Republicans will continue to fight on to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans who want to serve in our military without regard to their sexual orientation. Our next step will be to ask the Ninth Circuit to expedite the government's appeal from Judge Phillips's judgment and injunction.

Log Cabin Republicans are disappointed that the Supreme Court decided to maintain the status quo with regards to 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' but we are not surprised. We are committed to pursuing every avenue in the fight against this failed and unconstitutional policy. Log Cabin will continue working to secure the votes needed for legislative repeal, and if necessary, we look forward to seeing President Obama's attorneys in court next year to prove, once again, that 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' doesn't work.
