U.S. Supreme Court

Goesaert v. Cleary, 335 U.S. 464 (1948)

Goesaert v. Cleary

No. 49

Argued November 19, 1948

Decided December 20, 1948

335 U.S. 464


Mich.Stat.Ann. (Cum.Supp. 1947) § 18.990(1), which in effect forbids any female to act as a bartender unless she be "the wife or daughter of the male owner" of a licensed liquor establishment, does not violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Pp. 335 U. S. 465-467.

(a) The classification which Michigan has made as between wives and daughters of owners of liquor establishments and wives and daughters of nonowners is not without a reasonable basis. Pp. 335 U. S. 465-467.

(b) Nor is the statute rendered unconstitutional because Michigan allows women to serve as waitresses where liquor is dispensed. P. 335 U. S. 467.

74 F.Supp. 735 affirmed.

A three-judge federal district court denied an injunction to restrain enforcement of Mich.Stat.Ann. (Cum.Supp. 1947) 18.990(1), in effect forbidding any female to act as a bartender unless she be "the wife or daughter of the male owner" of a licensed liquor establishment. 74 F.Supp. 735. On appeal to this Court, affirmed, p. 335 U. S. 467. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
