MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has again refused to review a Madison judge's ruling striking down Wisconsin's voter identification law.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera challenged the state's requirement that all voters show photo IDs at the polls. Judge David Flanagan ruled in July the mandate impaired the right to vote. His decision came months after another Madison judge invalidated the law.
The Supreme Court in September refused the state Justice Department's request to hear its appeal on the NAACP case directly and merge the cases. The agency renewed the request in November.
The high court denied it again on Monday with no explanation. That means the case will stay with the 2nd District Court of Appeals.
