High Court Refuses to Block Ban on Gay Troops

Ad Feedback

The Supreme Court will not block the military from enforcing its "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy while the issue is worked out in federal appeals court.

The high court denied a request Friday by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group, for the justices to get involved in the case.

Last month, a federal judged ruled that the military's ban on homosexuals from serving is unconstitutional. An appeals court then said the policy could remain in place while it considers an appeal filed by the Justice Department.

The Log Cabin Republicans group was hoping to block the ban until a final ruling is made. The Obama administration urged the Supreme Court not to get involved at this point.
