QDRO Case Going Up to United States Supreme Court

Iowa Divorce and Family Law Blog's post U.S. Supreme Court Accepts Certiorari in QDRO Case has an interesting issue that I have not seen elsewhere:

The United States Supreme Court accepted certiorari in the 5th Circuit case of Kennedy v. E.I. Dupont, 497 F.3d 426 (5th Cir. 2007). The issue the Court will consider is limited to whether a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is the only valid way a divorcing spouse can waive her right to receive her ex-husband's pension benefits under ERISA.
Using Google, I found that Northwestern University has a report on the case which shows its status as unscheduled.
