Log Cabin Republicans’ Super Fun DADT Lawsuit Begins Today!

Beginning at 9am PST/12pm EST, the monotonous proceedings begin in Log Cabin Republicans v. United States of America, which itself represents the Obama administration’s failure to act on DADT before it had the chance to alone decide its fate.

Federal Judge Victoria A. Phillips will hear the case alone in a California courtroom; there will be no jury. And depending on its outcome, it might give the Justice Department another opportunity to defend, on appeal, laws the president believes to be discriminatory. Score!
