If WalMart hadn't changed their policy regarding gay marriage benefits prior to the 2015 ruling on gay marriage, they wouldn't be in this case. Prior to that ruling, there is no government recognition of gay marriage. But they changed their policy to include it before the ruling that made every state recognize gay marriages.
