I haven't seen much about this story and its lacking some details so if anyone has more information fell free to post it up.

Anyway. The supreme court decided against hearing a repeal of a Texas court that ruled that states have the right to refuse to give gay government employee's spouses benefits.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday swatted down an appeal by Houston to ensure that gay spouses working for the city are entitled to government-subsidized workplace benefits, allowing the Texas Supreme Court’s original ruling on the matter to stand. Houston had challenged a ruling by the Texas Supreme Court in June that overturned a lower court’s decision to grant spousal benefits to gay city employees.
