Log Cabin Republicans Announce Progress On Their DADT Suit

In an announcement posted on their homepage, the Log Cabin Republicans report that the DOJ has been denied in their appeal to stop the LCR's suit to repeal DADT.
In a ruling delivered on the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday, U.S. Federal Court Judge Virginia Phillips handed Log Cabin Republicans a major legal victory by denying the Obama Administration Justice Department's last-minute appeal, which sought to stay proceedings and block discovery in the leading federal case challenging the discriminatory 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy. Barring any kind of extraordinary tactics the Obama Justice Department may try to use to derail this case, the trial is scheduled to begin in June 2010.
According to the LCR, theirs is the only such suit to survive a challenge at the district court level.
