Hearing set on Voter ID injunction request

Posted By on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 2:49 PM

Jeff Priebe, attorney in the lawsuit challenging the state Voter ID law, tells me a hearing has been set on his request for a preliminary injunction at 1 p.m. Friday, May 2.

The case is before Circuit Judge Tim Fox. The injunction would prevent enforcement of the new law in the May primary and judicial elections. The lawsuit contends that the law violates the state Constitution, which prohibits additional barriers to voting.
