A U.S. District judge in California has ruled that the ban on gay people serving openly in the military is unconstitutional. The case, by Log Cabin Republicans, included testimony from Air Force Major Mike Almy and others about the hardships they faced under Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
In her memorandum opinion, U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips writes:
[T]he Act's restrictions on speech not only are broader than reasonably necessary to protect the Government's substantial interests, but also actually serve to impede military readiness and unit cohesion rather than further these goals.
