Wisconsin Top Court Won’t Hear State Voter-ID Case Quicky

Wisconsin’s Supreme Court denied the state’s request to immediately hear its appeals of two trial court-level rulings invalidating a voter identification law.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen last month asked the high court to delay enforcement of the decisions rendered by a pair judges in the state’s capital city, Madison, earlier this year pending appellate review. He also asked the seven-justice panel to immediately hear his challenges and bypass the state’s intermediate appellate court.
