Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office has registered two suspended voters suing him in federal court and now argues that the case should now be thrown out.
Kobach faces a lawsuit from a pair of Douglas County residents, who were placed in suspended status when they tried to register to vote. The suit challenges the state’s requirement that prospective voters must show proof of citizenship in order to vote.
Kobach’s office filed a motion in federal court Tuesday to have the case dismissed on the grounds that the plaintiffs lack standing because they are now registered to vote. Kobach’s office registered them after the lawsuit was brought in late September.
