Reed v. Reed
APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME COURT OF IDAHO
A mandatory provision of the Idaho probate code that gives preference to men over women when persons of the same entitlement class apply for appointment as administrator of a decedent' estate is based solely on a discrimination prohibited by and therefore violative of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
BURGER, C.J., delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court.
