Department of Justice Acts to Stop ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Injunction

The Department of Justice has filed legal briefs in an attempt to stop a federal judge from issuing an injunction that would immediately halt the military from using the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy. Earlier this month, the judge had declared the policy was unconstitutional, but said she wanted input from both sides before issuing an injunction.

The Department of Justice puts President Obama in a tight position, as he has called for the repeal of the policy by Congress. The White House says that the Department of Justice is merely doing what they are supposed to be doing—defending an act of Congress that was lawfully past.
