CINCINNATI (AP) - A new plaintiff has joined a fight to have gay marriages recognized in Ohio despite a statewide ban.

David Brian Michener (MISH'-ehn-er) of Cincinnati is asking a federal judge to order that his recently deceased husband be listed on his death certificate as married, with Michener listed as his spouse.

The Tuesday court document seeking that order, obtained by The Associated Press, says that Michener and William Herbert Ives (eyevz) got married in Delaware on July 22 and have three adopted children, and that Ives died unexpectedly of natural causes a week ago.

Michener wants the order before Ives' scheduled Wednesday cremation.

Michener is joining a July lawsuit against Ohio authorities by another gay Cincinnati couple who married in Delaware and want their marriage recognized in their home state.
