WI Supreme Court to hear voter ID arguments Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear arguments in two lawsuits challenging the state's voter photo identification law on Tuesday.

The NAACP's Milwaukee branch and the League of Women Voters have challenged the law in separate cases.

Dane County judges struck the law down in both cases, but the 4th District Court of Appeals found the law constitutional in the League of Women Voters case.  Now, the league seeks Supreme Court review.  The justices in November decided to pull the NAACP out of the 2nd District Court of Appeals and decide it themselves.

The justices will hear arguments in both cases on Tuesday, February 25.

A federal judge in Milwaukee is considering two other challenges to the law as well.
