Abstract

JURIST Guest Columnist Kevin Govern of Ave Maria School of Law says that despite the recent District Court decisions enjoining the Department of Defense from enforcing or applying "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," there remains a significant body of law allowing the military to demand what it considers "exemplary conduct" from its members.
