Wisconsin high court declines voter ID case

Thanks to Wizcon for the tip and link to this article. It’s a great decision!

Wisconsin Supreme Court Thursday declined to take up two lower court rulings that the state’s voter ID laws violate the Constitution.

The high court issued two unsigned orders saying if it were to take up the issue it would only review both lower court cases at the same time, and that it had not received appeal briefs in one of the two case, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

Thursday’s court action suggests the law, requiring voters to present photo ID at the polls, will not be in effect for the Nov. 6 presidential election, the newspaper said.

Dane County Judge Richard Niess ruled in March, in a lawsuit filed by the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, parts of the law are “unconstitutional to the extent they serve as a condition for voting at the polls.”

    Pretty much everything Gov Walker has done has been ruled unconstitutional at this point. The two voter ID cases. A portion of the redistricting splitting hispanic neighborhoods in Milwaukee. And Act 10, the union busting bill.
    Attorney General Van Hollen is a busy man these days mounting appeals to these rulings.

    Thank God there are some judges who know what they are doing. Walker is a scumbag.

    Perfect storm in WI. Ryan is also running for his house seat. All of a sudden he is fundraising for that.

    Sage Reply:

    I forgot about Ryan being from WI. I don’t think he thinks that VP job is looking too promising right now.
