The same federal judge who ruled the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy unconstitutional last month has issued an injunction stopping enforcement of the ban on gays serving openly, the Associated Press reports.

U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips, of Riverside, ordered the military to immediately stop any investigations or discharges currently in process under the policy, CNN reports.

The Justice Department has 60 days to appeal, and it is expected to do so, according to CNN.
