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.
