DADT To Remain In Effect, For Now

 WASHINGTON – The Human Rights Campaign expressed disappointment with the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals’ decision to continue a stay of an injunction blocking “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” enforcement.  For now, the military’s ban on openly lesbian and gay service members remains in effect.  Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese issued the following statement:

"Every day that 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is in force, Americans are losing out on the best and brightest service members defending our country.  For the good of our national security, the endless legal wrangling and political posturing has to stop.  This is the year for the President to lead and for Congress to clean up the mess it made when it enacted this discriminatory and unconstitutional law nearly two decades ago.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
