Voter ID trial scheduled for July

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson today scheduled the latest trial on a challenge to Pennsylvania's voter ID law for July 15. That is two months after the May 21 primary, so in the meantime voter ID opponents will seek an injunction again keeping the law from being enforced.

From the ACLU of Pa:

Plaintiffs will be filing a motion asking the court to extend its preliminary injunction, which prevented the law from being implemented for in-person voting this past November, until the legal case has been concluded. The motion is due by Feb. 8, 2013, with a response due by Feb. 13, 2013. In his order, Judge Simpson set a date of March 21 for a final decision on the extension of the preliminary injunction.

Judge Simpson's scheduling order is here.
