Military gay ban intact

Lyle Denniston Reporter

(UPDATED) Without noting a dissent, but with Justice Kagan not taking part, the Court denied a gay rights advocacy group's plea to block the military from enforcing the 1993 law that bars gays and lesbians from serving openly in the services. The order means the policy will remain in effect at least through March, unless Congress repeals it  an unlikely prospect.

UPDATE 1:51 p.m. The Supreme Court, without noting any dissent, agreed on Friday to leave the military's "don't ask/don't tell" policy in full effect while its constitutionality is under review in a lower court. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy referred the issue to the full Court. Justice Elena Kagan took no part in the order.

As a result of the order, the policy will remain in effect at least through mid-March, unless Congress in the meantime voted to repeal it legislatively  an unlikely prospect, according to most observers. The Ninth Circuit Court is reviewing a federal judge's decision to strike down the policy and to impose a worldwide ban on its enforcement. The Circuit Court's briefing schedule, however, will not be completed until late February or early March, and a hearing and decision would come after that.
