SCOTUS Cites Sitkoff in Beneficiary Designation Case

Melin, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the retroactive application of Minnesota’s revocation-on-divorce statute, which automatically nullifies an ex-spouse’s beneficiary designation on a life-insurance policy or other will substitute, does not violate the Constitution’s contracts clause. The work of Harvard Law School’s Robert H. Sitkoff was cited in both majority and dissenting opinions.
