U.S. District Court Judge Lynn Adelman, a Clinton appointee, will hold a trial over Wisconsin’s law requiring voters at the polls to show certain types of government photo ID on November 4, 2013. The two cases are League of United Latin American Citizens v Deininger, 2:12cv-185, and Frank v Walker, 2:12cv-1128.
The League of United Latin American Citizens case was originally called Jones v Deininger, but the lone voter plaintiff in the case, Bettye Jones, died recently. On September 17, Judge Adelman ruled that that case may proceed, because the organizational plaintiffs have standing. The state had argued that only Jones had standing and that the case should be dismissed because she had died.
