Voter ID case likely coming next summer

Pennsylvania's voter ID law is heading back to the courtroom.

State Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson says he's leaning toward holding a trial next summer.

He met with lawyers in the case Thursday.

The former Northampton County judge is expected to make a ruling in two weeks.

State officials want Simpson to fast-track the case so a final ruling can be made before May's primary election.

The plaintiffs say they need more time to prepare for the case.
