SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
TERESA HARRIS, PETITIONER v. FORKLIFT SYSTEMS, INC.
on writ of certiorari to the united states court of appeals for the sixth circuit
The Court's opinion, which I join, seems to me in harmony with the view expressed in this concurring statement.
* Indeed, even under the Court's equal protection jurisprudence, which requires "an exceedingly persuasive justification" for a gender based classification, Kirchberg v. Feenstra, 450 U.S. 455, 461 (1981) (internal quotation marks omitted), it remains an open question whether "classifications based upon gender are inherently suspect." See Mississippi Univ. for Women v. Hogan, 458 U.S. 718, 724, and n. 9 (1982).
