Howell v. Howell: Arizona Family Law, Veterans’ Benefits, and the Supreme Court of the United States

I’ve written about a case we did the oral argument on at the Arizona Supreme Court, Howell, and that the case is now up at SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States). But, today was Howell‘s oral argument at SCOTUS. Here is a summary of the facts and issues in Howell argued at SCOTUS. What this case really comes down to is how does Arizona divide military veterans’ retirement pay exchanged for VA disability pay when the retirement pay was specifically divided in a divorce decree? It is an interesting question with contradictory state and federal authority. I really look forward to the opinion. As soon as the audio from the oral argument is up, I will post that as well.
