U.S. appeals court finds that Texas voter ID law is discriminatory

A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ruled that a Texas law requiring voters to show a government-issued form of photo identification before casting a ballot is discriminatory.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit said the law has discriminatory effects and violates the U.S. Voting Rights Act.

1. Roh roh. Even if appealed to the SCOTUS, the split court would not overturn this ruling.

2. Here is a link to the opinion


Here is the link to the opinion which is over 200 pages with dissents and a concurrence https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2995942-Voter-ID-Opinion-5th-Circuit-July.html I just scanned the remedy section and a couple of paragraphs of the dissents. I want to bottle the tears of Edith Jones and Priscilla Owen reflected in these dissents
