National Coalition For Men v. Selective Service System

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
20-928 5th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether, in light of the Department of Defense having lifted the ban on women in combat, the Supreme Court should overrule Rostker v. Goldberg, which upheld the men-only draft because women at that time were categorically prohibited from serving in combat roles, and hold that the federal requirement that men but not women register for the Selective Service, authorized under 50 U.S.C. § 3802(a), violates the right to equal protection guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment.
