Welcome to the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Pursue Database, a project of the Robert Crown Law Library at Stanford Law School.

The Don’t site contains primary materials on the U.S. military’s policy on sexual orientation, from World War I to the present, ¬†with Professor Janet E. Halley’s book, Don’t: A Reader’s Guide to the Military’s Anti-Gay Policy (Duke University Press, 1999) as the site’s foundation.

The site includes legislation; regulations; internal directives of military service branches; materials on particular service members’ proceedings (from hearing board transcripts to litigation filings/papers and court decisions); policy documents generated by the military, Congress, the Department of Defense and other offices of the Executive branch of the U.S. Government; and advocacy documents submitted to government entities.
