9th Circuit indefinitely stays injunction halting DADT

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has indefinitely stayed the lower court ruling of judge Virginia Phillops to stop DOD from enforcing “don’t ask don’t tell” according to news reports late Nov. 1. A typical story on MSN and the Kentucky News is here. This story is by Mark Seibel of McClatchy newspapers/

In general, the Circuit said that a sudden change in policy could be harmful to the Armed Forces, and that it could not interfere with previous rulings in appeals courts in circuits 1, 2, 4 and 8 without a full hearing on the merits of the Log Cabin case.

SLDN offered the following press release.
