Goesaert v. Cleary by Felix Frankfurter

Goesaert v. Cleary, 335 U.S. 464 (1948), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court upheld a Michigan law which prohibited women from being employed as bartenders unless their father or husband owned the establishment. Craig v. Boren, 429 U.S. 190 (1976) subsequently overruled Goesaert. Excerpted from Goesaert v. Cleary on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
