HARRISBURG, Pa. - A legal challenge to Pennsylvania's tough new law requiring each voter to show a valid photo identification card will reappear in court next week.
A court clerk said a Commonwealth Court judge will take up the case Tuesday, after the Supreme Court ordered a review of whether registered voters are able to get the state-issued photo IDs they need to vote.
The judge will be Robert Simpson, who initially denied the plaintiffs' request in August to halt the law. The high court asked for an opinion by Oct. 2, just 35 days before the election.
Vic Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union says he expects a two-day hearing, with witnesses testifying and affidavits from people who he says have had a difficult time trying to get an ID.
