Obama administration sought delay of DADT review
Meagan McElroy at 12:00 AM ET

On February 25, 2011, the Obama administration requested in a brief [PDF] that the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit delay its review of an order striking down the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy. The administration sought the delay after President Barack Obama signed a legislative repeal of DADT in December 2010, which rendered the lawsuit's issue effectively moot when it took effect in September 2011. The US District Court for the Central District of California had struck down the policy as unconstitutional.
