CINCINNATI -- A man who with his longtime partner helped lead a challenge to Ohio's ban on gay marriage has died.
A funeral home director and the attorney for John Arthur confirm that he died early Tuesday at home. He had suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease.
Arthur and James Obergefell, both 47, flew to Maryland in June to marry. They then sued for recognition of their marriage in Ohio so they can be buried next to each other in Arthur's family plot.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Black found in favor of the couple. He wrote that they deserved to be treated with respect and that Ohio law historically has recognized out-of-state marriages as valid as long as they were legal where they took place, citing marriages between cousins and involving minors.
