A federal judge’s dismissal of Maj. Magaret Witt’s lawsuit about her discharge from the US army for being gay was revived by an appeals court, Wednesday. The appeals court said the government may only “intrude upon the personal and private lives of homosexuals” to “advance an important governmental interest”. In a statement released Wednesday, Maj. Witt indicated her will to continue her career, “Wounded people never asked me about my sexual orientation …]They were just glad to see me there.” she said. According to [CNN Maj. Margaret Witt who joined the air force in 1987 had been told by a fellow soldier in 2004 that he was officially investigating her homosexuality. After 20 years of military service, she was discharged from the US army in 2007 on the grounds that she had had a relationship with another woman between 1997 and 2003.
