A federal judge on Friday will hear arguments in a challenge to Indiana's ban on gay marriage.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young will consider arguments in his Evansville chambers.

Niki Quasney and Amy Sandler are one of the five plaintiff couples in the case. Earlier this month, Young ordered the state to recognize their Massachusetts marriage so that Quasney, who has stage 4 ovarian cancer, can be listed as married on her anticipated death certificate and Sandler listed as her surviving spouse. Young issued a temporary restraining order which expires in 28 days. The women will ask Young to extend the ruling.

Sandler told the AP that she felt Young would rule in their favor, adding that the next battle is cultural.

“Having legal backing is really important, but then there's the cultural issues that will still follow,” she said. “My hope is that the cultural shift will follow. Unfortunately, it's going to take a lot of people who are really passionate about being treated fairly to stand up.”

Plaintiffs are represented by Lambda Legal, a legal group which promotes LGBT civil rights.
