Riding high today, aren't we HD?

Take That member Howard Donald was victorious in court today. He won an injunction preventing an ex-girlfriend, Adakini Ntuli, from revealing intimate details about their relationship.

Reportedly, things did not end well with the lovers back in April and Adakini was prepared to air all of their sexy, dirty laundry, but the law has intervened and now she's been gagged.

Can't make a buck off your misfortune if you can't talk about it! Whomp, whomp!

When will these girl learn!

'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy Is Reinstated.

So incredibly disappointing.

A San Francisco federal appeals court has overturned Judge Virginia A. Phillips' injunction against 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and has ruled that the military must keep the policy in place.

According to the 9th Circuit:

"a stay pending appeal would obviate the confusion and uncertainty that might be caused by temporary implementation of the district court's injunction, with the looming possibility that the statutory policy could be reinstated on appeal. Enjoining the operation of the statute before the appeal is concluded would create tremendous uncertainty about the status of servicemembers who may reveal their sexual orientation in reliance on the district court's decision and injunction."

They may have won the battle, but they have not won the war!

It's only a matter of time, people!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

Lt. Dan Choi FINALLY Able To Re-Enlist In The Army!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikInspiration

This is truly amazing! A day to be remembered and celebrated!

Because of the injunction currently banning the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, Lt. Dan Choi - who has fought tirelessly for gay rights in the military ever since he was kicked out over his sexuality - was able to re-enlist in the army yesterday as an openly gay man!

Although he originally intended to join the marines, he unfortunately found out he couldn't - but only because he was too old!

We're so thrilled to hear the news, and are so proud of Choi for being unrelenting in his fight for equal rights!

A well-deserved triumph, bb!

'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Injunction WILL Be Appealed.

Yuck.

The Justice Department is set to file an appeal this afternoon to fight Federal Judge Virginia A. Phillip's injunction against the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy.

Although we expected that this might happen, we can't begin to articulate how disappointed we are with the Obama administration right now.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

Judge Issues Injunction On 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell!'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikInspiration

It's HAPPENING!

U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips has just ordered the Defense Department "immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceedings" relating to 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell!'

Lawyers for the Justice Department are sure to appeal the injunction, but this is MASSIVE step in the right direction!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

White House Attempts To Stop Judge From Issuing An Injunction To Ban DADT!

wenn5547396jb.jpg

So disappointing - and INFURIATING!

Earlier this month, following a non-jury trial that lasted three weeks, US District Court Judge Virginia Phillips ruled that Don't Ask, Don't Tell was indeed unconstitutional. She could possibly be issuing an injunction today that would ban the policy - but the White House is now attempting to STOP it!

WTF?

The White House apparently feels that the aforementioned injunction challenges Congress, and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explains in a statement:

"This filing in no way diminishes the president's firm commitment to achieve a legislative repeal of DADT – indeed, it clearly shows why Congress must act to end this misguided policy."

Phillips' injunction stems from a lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights organization hoping for a nationwide ban, and are obviously very disappointed with the White House's current stance.

Their attorney, Dan Woods, says:

"It's sad and disappointing that the administration would file such a document days after it urged Congress to repeal 'don't ask, don't tell."

Agreed! We have the opportunity to BAN this foolish policy for once and all, right now, and now they're trying to throw it back into the shark tank for more debate?!

Unbelievable!

This is truly a sad day for the Obama administration. They should all be absolutely ashamed of themselves, after the tireless efforts so many have made to get the same HUMAN RIGHTS as everyone else.

Thoughts??

Denied! Judge Refuses To Grant Jeremy London Restraining Order Against Family!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsLegal MattersZ List

jlondonwenn2679691__opt.jpg

Of course he was denied!

He's a delusional crackhead!

Today in court, a judge denied actor Jeremy London an injunction against his mother, twin brother Jason, and Jason's girlfriend from speaking to the press about his imaginary abduction, in which he claims that he was forced to do drugs.

Apparently, London didn't even show up, and his mother's lawyer succesfully argued that her speaking out about trying to help her son was within her First Amendment right to voice her concerns!

Obviously, his family is just trying to help, and hopefully he will see that and listen to them before it's too late!
