Ask, and You Shall Receive
The September 9 opinion of the United States District Court (Central District of California) in the case of Log Cabin Republicans v. USA is available here. In its 85 page opinion, the court found fault with the US Military's “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy on the touchstone of the fifth and first amendments to the American Constitution (although definitive relief has not yet been issued). Like Naz Foundation the opinion reminds us that constitutional law does not begin with the Supreme Court, although it may end there.
