The Department of Justice is asking the ninth circuit court of appeals to rule before the end of day Wednesday on a federal judge’s rejection of its request for a stay of her worldwide injunction on the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

“We respectfully request that the Court enter an administrative stay by today October 20, 2010, pending this Court’s resolution of the government’s motion for a stay pending appeal, which would maintain the status quo that prevailed before the district court’s decision while the Court considers the government’s stay motion,” said the filing.

Federal judge Virginia Phillips rejected the Justice Department’s motion for a stay late Tuesday afternoon, Pacific time.
