The Obama administration is asking the Supreme Court to overturn California’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples and turn a skeptical eye on similar prohibitions across the country.

The administration says unequivocally in a legal brief filed late Thursday that marriage should be allowed to resume in California, where it has been barred since the passage of Proposition 8 in 2008.
