The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear arguments on the voter ID lawSubmitted: 01/29/2014
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear arguments on the voter I-D law.

Arguments in 2 cases challenging the state's ID law will be heard next month.

Both the Milwaukee branch of the NAACP and the League of Women Voters
challenge the law.

Dane County judges struck the law down in both cases.

But the 4th District Court of Appeals ruled the law was constitutional in the
case against the League of Women Voters.

That prompted the league to seek Supreme Court review.

In November, the justices decided to remove the NAACP case out of the 2nd
District Court of Appeals.

A federal judge is considering two other challenges to the law.
