Texas Largely Loses Motion to Dismiss Voter ID Claims

Thanks to a reader for pointing out last week’s district court order in the Texas voter id case. The court mostly denied Texas’s motion to dismiss, even allowing claims to go forward at this point on voter id as a poll tax and as a First Amendment violation.  That’s not to say these will be winning claims, but it is significant that plaintiffs will get to advance a number of federal theories against the id law.
