SLDN Releases Statement on Major Margaret Witt Ruling
Published Thursday, 30-Sep-2010 in issue 1188
Statement from Aubrey Sarvis, Army veteran and executive director of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network:
“This is a stunning victory for Major Witt and all gay and lesbian patriots serving our country today. Clearly federal courts are trending towards allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly. It is only a matter of time before this happens throughout the armed forces, but these cases are slowly working their way through the legal process and it could well be years before there is finality in the courts. The favorable Witt decision, like the Log Cabin Republicans ruling, only underscores the urgent need for the Senate to take up repeal in the lame duck session.”
