Protect Our Defenders Joins an Amicus Brief Challenging Male-Only Selective Service Registration

Protect Our Defenders joined with 4 other organizations in filing an amicus before the Supreme Court urging the court to reverse the decision of the Fifth Circuit Court. The Firth Circuit Court judge reversed a lower court decision that agreed with Plaintiff, the National Coalition for Men, that the Selective Service System is unconstitutional because it applies only to males aged 18-26 and not women. The amicus brief, authored by the Modern Military Association of America (MMAA) and cosigned by POD, supports Plaintiff’s position that the Selective Service System should apply to both men and women aged 18-26.
