Briefs Available in Arizona Elections Clause Case

Important case flying under the radar at SCOTUS.  More about it when I have time.  In the meantime, here are the briefs, courtesy of the ABA:

State of Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona

Docket No., 12-71

Arguement Date: TBD

Did the court of appeals err 1) in creating a new, heightened preemption test under Article I,  Section 4, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution (“the Elections Clause”) that is contrary to this Court’s authority  and conflicts with other circuit court decisions, and 2) in holding that under that test the National Voter  Registration Act preempts an Arizona law that requests persons who are registering to vote to show  evidence that they are eligible to vote?
