A federal judge has ordered the Defense Department to halt all enforcement worldwide of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy regarding gays in the military. […]

The Justice Department had urged Phillips, who sits in Riverside, Calif., to limit any relief in the case to the Log Cabin group or to the named plaintiffs, but the judge rebuffed that request. Her order applies to all U.S. military operations across the globe.

Obviously going to get appealed, but a good step in the right direction.

It’s not obvious that it’ll be appealed, since DOJ isn’t obligated to appeal and the outcome definitely falls in line with what the administration wants anyway. The only reason to appeal would be to keep the ball in Congress’s court so they can repeal the law entirely, but with the fucking idiots and assholes in the House and Senate, it’s not a given that they’ll ever repeal DADT, so the best option is likely for DOJ to simply let things stand as is with the ruling.

Get rid of the apple-tini, goddamnit.
