The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has lifted the injunction imposed by a district court that prevented the Pentagon from enforcing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. This keeps the status quo in place while the case is on appeal.
The one page order reads simply:
This court has received appellant’s emergency motion to stay the district court’s October 12, 2010 order pending appeal. The order is stayed temporarily in order to provide this court with an opportunity to consider fully the issues presented. Appellee may file an opposition to the motion for a stay pending appeal by October 25, 2010. To expedite consideration of the motion, no reply shall be filed.
