Octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan are unlikely heroes on a quest for justice. Edie had been forced to pay a huge estate tax bill upon the death of her spouse because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples – and Edie’s spouse was a woman. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her more than 40-year relationship with the love of her life, Edie decided to sue the United States government.
