Associate Professor Aaron Caplan presents on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" at Georgetown University Law Center

Associate Professor Aaron Caplan spoke at Georgetown University Law Center on November 17, 2010 as part the conference titled "The Future of Don't Ask, Don't Tell". View the video. Caplan is co-counsel for Major Margaret Witt, an Air Force nurse who recently won reinstatement to the military after being discharged for her sexual orientation. The decision in her case established the important legal principle that the U.S. Constitution gives heightened judicial scrutiny to government actions that interfere with one's ability to form intimate relationships (including same-sex relationships). More information on the Witt litigation is available at the ACLU of Washington's website.
