Ninth Circuit reverses stay, technically meaning DADT is invalid in that Circuit

Today, the Ninth Circuit removed a stay in Judge Phillips's earlier ruling stopping the enforcement of "don't ask don't tell" in the Ninth Circuit area.  The Metro Weekly has a copy of the order here, and the order also mentions the litigation in the Circuit regarding the Defense of Marriage Act.

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network has a "Breaking News" story and statement, here, warning servicemembers that the administration could appeal and that DADT is still technically the "law of the land".  SLDN encourages the administration to make due speed in the certification. (No "all deliberate speed" here.)

Recently, there was still another case where a soldier did not report a bashing because of DADT.
