Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (3)

13 Oct

Add Judge Virginia Phillips to my list of judges of the year. Judge Phillips has ordered a global injunction against enforcing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. In her careful reading of the facts, she has determined that not only does discharging gay soldiers not aid the military’s goals, in fact, it hurts them.

The Justice Department still has time to appeal, and Obama is on record wanting Congress to overturn the law (they’ve already voted not to), but I hope they don’t. This is why we have the judiciary, to make the right decision even when its not the popular decision.
