Male-Only Draft Survives as SCOTUS Term Counts Down (PODCAST)

June 11, 2021, 10:48 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a petition challenging the military’s male-only draft, but a statement accompanying the denial from an interesting lineup of justices suggests the issue could come back to the court if Congress doesn’t act.

Hogan Lovells partner Cate Stetson, who co-counseling with the ACLU brought the challenge, joins the latest “Cases and Controversies” episode to break down the issue and look at where it’s headed.

She also talks with hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin about the justices’ seemingly-unusual alignments and how they show the court’s complexity.

And the hosts recap the latest battle between Justices Elena Kagan and Brett Kavanaugh in a case that limited the scope of a repeat-offender gun law.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin.

Guest: Cate Stetson

Producer: David Schultz.
