Supreme Court avoids Texas case on spousal benefits for gay couples.

The Supreme Court has declined to step into a case over a Texas high court ruling that says homosexual spouses may not be entitled to government-subsidized workplace benefits. The justices’ action Monday came without dissent or comment. It means a Texas court will now have to rule in a lawsuit started by social conservatives who want to block spousal benefits for homosexual city employees in Houston. The case follows the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision extending same-sex marriage nationwide. It’s unclear whether that ruling means governments must provide the same benefits to all married employees.
