Federal Judge Overturns Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Posted by | September 9, 2010 21:59 | Filed under: Top Stories

A California judge has declared the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy that effectively bans gays in the military unconstitutional.

District Court Judge Virginia Phillips — a Clinton appointee — also wrote that the policy has had a “deleterious effect” on the military and issued an injunction restraining the military from enforcing the policy, though the government may appeal.

The judge says Don’t Ask Don’t Tell denies gays their rights to due process and freedom of expression.
