Partner of Fallen State Trooper Fighting for Benefits

Partner of Fallen State Trooper Fighting for Benefits


The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Eastern Missouri head to court on Wednesday for Kelly Glossip, who's being denied death benefits after his partner of 15 years, a Missouri state trooper, was killed on duty.

Cpl. Dennis Engelhard died on Christmas Day 2009 after he was hit by a car as he investigated an accident. While spouses and opposite-sex partners of Missouri state troopers can receive an annuity of 50% of the employee's salary, Glossip is being denied the benefit. Glossip is raising a teenage son, who Englehard considered a stepson.

Arguments in the case begin at 1:30 CT in Jefferson City, Mo., with Glossip in attendance. Read more here.
