Maj. Margaret Witt, a former flight nurse, is continuing her lawsuit against the military for dismissing her because of her sexual orientation. Witt had been in the military for 20 years and was honorably discharged in July 2007 for a relationship she had with a civilian woman from 1997 to 2003. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy and says that the government may investigate the private lives of homosexuals when they are "hurting" morale or troop readiness.
