If and when there is another draft, expect the sexual discrimination complaint to come up. The law has been changed to recognize that female volunteers are members of the militia.
Frankly, though, I'd hope that we would avoid the need for another draft. The lesser of the two evils here seems to be keeping the archaic law on the books.
There are all sorts of good reasons why the judicial branch shouldn't be proactive on addressing the law, and should not be permitted to intercede without actual harm being caused. In the legislature, it would be nothing but a political hornet's nest, stinging everyone anywhere near it.
