NCFM files opening appellate brief in NCFM v. Selective Service System

Join the National Coalition For Men. We can do it too!

If you have been following this case, you will recall that last year the lower court dismissed NCFM v. Selective Service System as premature (not “ripe”) because the military had not completely implemented its new policy of allowing women to hold combat positions. NCFM Vice-President Marc Angelucci, Esq., our attorney, appealed to the 9th Circuit Court. Our opening appellate brief (below in two parts) was due April 10, 2014. But there was some confusion about how to designate a “Clerk’s Transcript” (the documents filed by both sides leading up to the order) to make it into the appellate court record.  Federal rules were not clear. So the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals granted our motion for more time, until June 27, 2014, to file our opening brief. It was filed today, June 25, 2014.

A copy of the brief is below. It’s in two PDF parts. The file was to large for uploading as one PDF. The links are below:

selective serviceThe Selective Service System should require women to register as well as men.

There is no justification for not requiring women to sign up for the Selective Service.

    Maybe people will stop backing pointless wars when they have to think about killing their daughters, too.

    Has the NCFM heard any support for this lawsuit from the ACLU or any other civil rights/civil liberties groups?
