CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A federal court judge granted an extension to a restraining order for local gay couple on Monday.

John Arthur of Cincinnati is dying of Lou Gehrig's disease. In July, U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Black granted him the right to be listed as married on his death certificate and to have his partner of more than 20 years, James Obergefell, listed as his surviving spouse.

The two were married this year in Maryland, which recognizes same-sex marriage.

The judge granted their motion for a temporary restraining order which was supposed to expire on Monday. Instead, the restraining order was extended until August 19.
