The Coalition for the Protection of Marriage asked the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday to take up Lambda Legal's lawsuit seeking the freedom to marry in Nevada.

Lambda Legal appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals a lower court ruling upholding the state's ban on marriage for same-sex couples.

Lambda attorney Tara Borelli, in Los Angeles, said she will oppose the coalition petition and officials with the gay rights organization doubt the Supreme Court will take up the case.

The coalition, based in Boise, Idaho, opposes gay marriage and was involved in the Nevada case.
