Judge Issues Another Ruling Against DADT

18 Oct

This could get more interesting.

From the Advocate:

U.S district judge Virginia A. Phillips issued a tentative ruling Monday rejecting the government’s request for a stay in the injunction against “don’t ask, don’t tell” but will issue a formal ruling by late Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.

During the 25-minute hearing, Phillips wasted no time in rejecting the government’s arguments that barring dadt immediately would be an undue burden on the military and called the justice department’s declarations to the court both vague and insufficient.

Assistant U.S attorney Paul Freeborne asked the court for a five day administrative stay so it can pursue an appeal of the injunction to the U.S. court of appeals for the ninth circuit.
