Ninth Circuit Expected to Decide Today If DADT Stay Stays (Update: Or Not)

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will “most likely” issue a decision some time today about whether it’ll grant a further stay, at the request of DoJ, in LCR v. U.S. to keep an injunction against Don’t Ask Don’t Tell from taking effect, the Washington Blade reports. The move would either extend an earlier emergency stay (granted to cover the time in which the court considered a more permanent stay) or let Judge Virginia Phillips’ ruling take effect while the government tried its hand at an appeal. Update: The Blade now says the timeline is looking like next week “at the earliest.”
