Ninth Circuit Grants Rehearing En Banc in Arizona Voter ID Case
Howard has the news. My earlier coverage of the panel decision was entitled Breaking News: Ninth Circuit, on 2-1 Vote with Strong Kozinksi Dissent, Holds that Arizona Requirement of Proof of Citizenship to Register to Vote is Preempted by the National Voter Registration Act. That post concluded: "Strong words, which makes me think that Judge Kozinski will be pushing hard for en banc reconsideration of this case."
