Military's gay ban

Military's gay ban

Two military officers who were discharged because of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy are expected to testify yesterday during a federal lawsuit posing the biggest constitutional challenge in years to the U.S. policy banning openly gay service members.
The lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights organization, seeks a federal injunction to immediately halt the policy.
The case has put the Obama administration in the awkward position of defending a policy the president is pushing Congress to repeal.
More than 13,500 service members have been fired under "don't ask, don't tell" since 1994.
