U.S. (Circuit dockets 10-56634 and 10-56813), was under review in the Ninth Circuit when the Obama Administration, responding to the repeal of the policy against gays and lesbians serving openly in the military services, asked the panel to declare the case moot and to vacate Judge Phillips’ decision against the ban.
