Fed Appeals Court Rules Against DADT

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled to reinstate
the permanent injunction against enforcement of
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" originally awarded by Judge
Virginia Phillips in the case of Log Cabin Republicans v.
United States.
Aubrey Sarvis, Executive Director of Servicemembers
Legal Defense Network & Army Vet issued this statement,
“Today’s decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
is most welcomed. It’s the hope of Servicemembers Legal
Defense Network that this favorable ruling will not be
challenged by the Defense Department. In fact, this whole
matter could have been avoided had we had certification
back in the spring. It’s time to get on with that important
certification, end the DADT confusion for all service
members, and put a final end to this misguided policy.”

The ruling by the 9th Circuit in Log Cabin Republicans v. United States removes all uncertainty - American servicemembers are no longer under threat of discharge as the repeal implementation process goes forward. As a captain in the United States Army Reserve, I have observed the reactions of my colleagues to the Department of Defense's move toward open service, and can say with complete confidence that our military is ready, willing and able to take this step. Log Cabin Republicans are proud of our role in ending this unconstitutional and un-American policy once and for all.
