Wisconsin Supreme Court Doesn’t Take Up Voter-ID Cases, Leaving Law On Hold

The Wisconsin Supreme Court declined a request to take up two voter-I.D. cases on an accelerated basis — thus leaving in place, for now, rulings that have kept the law frozen and not applicable to the upcoming general election.

State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican, had sought the court’s action on appealing the lower court rulings. The court currently has a 4-3 conservative majority, but the decision Thursday not to take up the case was made unanimously.
