Obama Admin. May Ask Justices to Overturn Prop 8

Ad Feedback

President Obama said his solicitor general will decide whether the administration will file a brief opposing Proposition 8 in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Prop 8 is the voter approved measure which bans gay marriage in California.

President Obama raised expectations for gay marriage supporters in his inaugural address last month.

He stated that gays and lesbians must be treated like anyone else under the law.

In an interview with an ABC News affiliate in San Francisco, the President said he needs to avoid interjecting himself into the process, even though he supports gay marriage.

"I can tell you though that obviously my personal view is that I think that same-sex couples should have the same rights and be treated like everybody else," said the President.

In 2011, the Obama administration withdrew its support of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, the federal law that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
