Federal Court in TX Voter ID Case Will Address Discriminatory Intent Claim in “Due Course,” Will Await Ruling on Remedies

From today’s order (via Josh Gerstein):

Having heard re-argument, this Court intends to issue its new opinion on whether SB 14 was passed with a discriminatory intent in violation of the Voting Rights Act at its earliest convenience and in due course. The Court will, however, await the end of the current Texas legislative session to address remedies. In that regard, this matter is set for a status conference on June 7, 2017….The Court GRANTS the United States’ motion for voluntary dismissal of its discriminatory purpose claim without prejudice
