U.S. Government Slapped With Maj. Mike Almy’s New Federal DADT Lawsuit

Air Force Maj. Mike Almy, Air Force Staff Sgt. Anthony Loverde, and Navy Petty Officer Second Class Jason Knight today launched a new Don’t Ask Don’t Tell lawsuit against the federal government with the backing of SLDN. All three men are decorated veterans discharged under DADT. Defense Sec. Robert Gates, who really really wants Congress and not the courts to decide the fate of DADT, is just going to love this one! And don’t even expect this to be the last one. Following a successful suit from Maj. Margaret Witt, and ongoing success with the Log Cabin Republicans’ federal suit, it’s clear the pace of repeal is quickening within the judicial system, while Senate Republicans (and a smattering of Democrats) continue stalling.
