MADISON, Wis. -A federal judge denied a request by Wisconsin's attorney general to put on hold his decision blocking the state's voter identification law from taking effect.
U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman on Wednesday denied Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's request for a stay of his April order blocking the photo ID law. Adelman says he is denying the request because Van Hollen's likelihood of winning the case on appeal is low.
Van Hollen has appealed to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and asked it to also lift Adelman's injunction blocking the photo ID requirement. That appeals court has given opponents of the law until Tuesday to respond to Van Hollen's request.
The 2011 law was in effect for only one election before Adelman issued a stay.
