8 soldiers sue Army over stop-loss policy
All eight have been barred from leaving their units even though their enlistment contracts have long since run out.
"They were desperately looking for some way to solve their situations, and it looks like most of the people they found who were trying to counsel or represent people in their situation were antiwar people," Mr. Lobel said. "But to me, the most interesting aspect of this whole thing is that it's not a question of antiwar or pro-war. It's not a question of red states or blue states. This stop-loss question is just about fairness."Only one of the soldiers is named in the lawsuit - the rest, fearing retribution, are listed as John Does 1 through 7. Full story in the New York Times.
