LCR To Court: Keep DADT Case Open

Yesterday the Log Cabin Republicans filed a brief demanding that a San Francisco federal appeals court continue to hear their DADT repeal lawsuit.
Lawyers for Log Cabin Republicans filed a brief Monday arguing that because the ban has not been lifted, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals needs to maintain its schedule in the government's challenge to the lower court's ruling. It came in response to a Justice Department motion seeking to suspend the case for at least three months. The department faces a Jan. 24 deadline for submitting opening arguments. Government lawyers say putting the appeal on hold would allow the Pentagon to focus on training troops and other tasks necessary for completing the repeal of the ban.
