SUPREME COURT DENIES CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO GAYS AT REQUEST OF OBAMA

CNN - A former Army captain who was dismissed under a federal law dealing with gays and lesbians in the military lost his appeal at the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to intervene in the challenge to the "don't ask/don't tell" law. . .

The Obama administration had asked the high court not to take the case, and White House officials had said they would not object to homosexuals being kicked out of the armed services.

During the presidential campaign last year, President Obama said he supported throwing out the federal law but has taken no specific action on the controversy.
