Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered the government to stop enforcing the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” law that prevented openly gay service members in the U.S. military.

    Pentagon spokesman Marine Corp Colonel Dave Lapan said the Defense Department will comply and is informing commands worldwide of the court’s order.

    A stay had been placed November 1st after 9th Circuit Judge Virginia Philips had ruled the law was unconstitutional.

    In the meantime, Congress had passed a repeal of the 1993 law.

    The final decision Wednesday ends judicial action on the law.
