HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Helena judge has extended his order blocking a man from raising money for a documentary about early Montana cowboys that state officials say is fake.

District Judge Mike Menahan on Tuesday approved Matthew McClintock’s request to postpone a court hearing until Aug. 24 because of health issues.

But Menahan said the preliminary injunction he granted in May will remain in place until the hearing is held.

McClintock, who said his name is really Albert Michael Willis, protested that he must deposit corporate funding if he is to air the film by November.

Securities Commissioner Monica Lindeen’s office began investigating McClintock after a firm he hired to find investors began to suspect the film was a fraud.

McClintock is on probation after pleading guilty in 2010 in a money-raising scam.
