NBC on SheWired: DADT Repeal Put on Hold - Video

The 9th District Court grants an injunction against an earlier ruling that ended "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the ban on homosexual service members. Late Wednesday night the 9th circuit court of appeals told the military to reinstate is ban on openly gay men and women, issuing a stay on a lower court's injunction that lifted the ban and allowed, for the first time, openly gay members and recruits to sign up. A year after Lt. Dan Choi was discharged from the military under DADT, he returned to the Times Square recruiting center to reenlist. His enlistment is now on hold as the 9th Circuit considers the case, and the Justice Departments request for a more permanent stay.

Late Wednesday night the 9th circuit court of appeals told the military to reinstate is ban on openly gay men and women, issuing a stay on a lower court's injunction that lifted the ban and allowed, for the first time, openly gay members and recruits to sign up. 

A year after Lt. Dan Choi was discharged from the military under DADT, he returned to the Times Square recruiting center to reenlist. His enlistment is now on hold as the 9th Circuit considers the case, and the Justice Departments request for a more permanent stay. 

While President Obama has promised an end to DADT, the administration hopes to do so through Congress, and not the courts. In the meantime, gay and lesbian service members are being advised not to come out, as they can still be discharged at this time.
