FedEx Ordered to Allow Benefits for Same-Sex Partner

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton recently ordered FedEx to incorporate same-sex partners in the operation of the company's pension plan. This was the result of a law suit by the surviving spouse of a FedEx employee who died just days before the Defense of Marriage Act was overturned by the Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor.

The ruling will allow the plaintiff to pursue survivor benefits from FedEx, which had previously argued that she was not a valid beneficiary of the deceased spouse's pension.
