In a suit brought by the Log Cabin Republicans in federal court in Southern California, Judge Virginia A Phillips has declared that the policy of the United State military known as Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell that bars gays and lesbians from service violates the First Amendment and is thus unconstitutional. Judge Phillips will issue an injunction barring the Department of Defense from enforcing DADT, which is expected to be appealed by the government.
