WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Obama administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage.
Gay marriage has been banned in California since 2008 when voters there passed Proposition 8.
The court is scheduled to hear arguments on a lawsuit challenging Prop 8 later this month.
If the court does overturn Prop 8 it could also lead to gay marriage becoming legal in seven other states as well.
