Ninth Circuit Court Denies Request To Suspend LCR's DADT Lawsuit
Late yesterday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the federal government's request that they suspend the Log Cabin Republicans' lawsuit seeking the repeal of DADT.
The opposed motion to hold these appeals in abeyance is denied. The briefing schedule is reset as follows: the government's opening brief and excerpts of record are due February 25, 2011; Log Cabin Republicans' answering brief and supplemental excerpts of record are due March 28, 2011; and the government's reply brief is due 14 days after service of the answering brief. The pending motions filed by proposed intervenor Joseph Zernik shall be addressed by separate order.
