Rutgers' Lacrosse Coach Gets Reinstated DESPITE Bad Language And Behavior!

rutgers lacross reinstated inquiry abusive tactics sports awful fired

We were pretty worried about Rutgers and their idea of proper hiring over there in their sports department, and now it's looking like their Lacrosse coach (Brian Brecht) has been reinstated after an inquiry into his coaching style!

The inquiry was launched because there were MORE allegations of verbal abuse! If you remember, they just got done firing Mike Rice for just that — being an awful and mean human being to his players!

So if they reinstated him, the allegations were false, right??

'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!

A Victory Against DADT, Judge Orders Air Force To Reinstate Nurse

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

This is two steps forward!

U.S. district judge Ronald B. Leighton ruled on Friday that former Air Force Reserve flight nurse, Margaret Witt, be reinstated to her job as soon as possible after being discharged under 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'

The judge had called Witt and "exemplary officer" and noted that "good flight nurses were hard to find."

After the ruling, Witt said in a statement:

"I'm thrilled about the decision today. appreciate the Court's belief in the professionalism of the military. Many people forget that the U.S. military is the most diverse workforce in the world — we are extremely versed in adaptation. Thousands of men and women who are gay and lesbian honorably serve this country in our military. Wounded personnel never asked me about my sexual orientation. They were just glad to see me. I can't wait to rejoin my unit."

In his decision, Judge Leighton wrote:

"The application of 'don't ask, don’t tell' to Major Margaret Witt does not significantly further the government’s interest in promoting military readiness, unit morale and cohesion. Her discharge from the Air Force Reserves violated her substantive due process rights under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution."

This is a huge step in defeating DADT! We hope that many more will realize just how unconstitutional this law really is.
