Report: Obama ‘Likely’ To Appeal Court Ban Against Enforcing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The Washington Blade’s Chris Johnson is reporting that “the Obama administration is ‘likely’ to appeal an injunction barring the enforcement of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a source familiar with the case.” Last week’s decision from the Ninth Circuit “reinstituted an injunction barring the U.S. government from enforcing” the policy, and on Monday, the court asked the government to “show cause why this case should not be dismissed as moot, either immediately or upon such time as the President certifies that all conditions for the repeal of § 654 set forth in the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act have been satisfied.”
