Judge threw out challenge to Army 'stop-loss' policy
Kyle Webster at 12:00 AM ET

On January 24, 2006, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit that claimed that the US Army had fraudulently induced two individuals into enlisting in the US Army National Guard by not informing them that they could be forced to remain on active duty indefinitely. The court stated that there was no evidence that misleading tactics were used by recruiters, pointing out that the contract clearly stated the possibility of indefinite active duty. Despite the approval of the court on this issue, the Department of Defense (DOD) began cutting back "stop-loss" military service extensions in January 2007.
