DOJ Asks Supreme Court to Drop Draft Challenge

Congress expected to legislate Selective Service regulations.

President Biden’s administration has requested that the justices of the Supreme Court forego hearing a case about the male-only draft system. The Department of Justice stated that it was unnecessary due to the action members of Congress are taking regarding the Military Selective Service Act. The suit claims the act is unconstitutional and discriminatory due to its exclusion of females.

“Although this Court might someday wish to reconsider the constitutionality of the MSSA’s registration requirement if that statutory provision remains unchanged, Congress’s attention to the question may soon eliminate any need for the Court to grapple with that constitutional question,” Justice Department attorneys wrote.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the justices of the Supreme Court as they choose the cases they will hear.
  • For discernment for the Department of Justice and the cases they bring to court.
