The Examiner reports that the Obama administration is considering urging the Supreme Court to overturn California’s Proposition 8. The state’s ban on gay marriage has been a hot topic since the initiative was approved by voters in 2008. In 2010, the proposition was overturned by United States District Court, and in 2012 supporters of the ban petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case. A brief to intervene in the case must be filed by Feb. 28.
