Edie Windsor is getting her money back. She was saddled with over $360,000 in Federal estate taxes after her wife and partner of over 40 years died. A married straight couple wouldn't have had to pay a thing. Suing the United States, her case became a test of the rights afforded to married gay couples by the US Government.
