WASHINGTON  — The Obama administration on Wednesday asked a US appeals court to immediately suspend a judge's ruling that overturned the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays.

The government said it wants the US Court of Appeals in San Francisco to take action on Wednesday. The federal government is preparing arguments for the appeals court on why the ruling on "don't ask, don't tell" should be suspended while the case is appealed.

Under the policy the military may not ask armed service members about their sexual orientation and service members may not disclose it.
