Should certain state benefits be limited only to married couples, even though that could discriminate against gays and lesbians in Missouri?
That's one of the questions the Missouri Supreme Court will be considering after hearing arguments today in the case of Kelly Glossip, whose partner, Cpl. Dennis Englehard, was killed in the line of duty as a state trooper.
The Missouri Supreme Court will hear arguments on Wednesday in a case that began with the tragic line-of-duty death of a Missouri state trooper.
According to the state, Dennis Englehard left behind no survivors. But his partner of 15 years disagreed - and sued to access the benefits he felt he was due. A district judge in Cole County rejected that request.
Kelly Glossip never thought he would be a gay rights activist.
