High court considering appeal over Arizona voter ID law

Washington (CNN) - Justice Anthony Kennedy has put on hold a lower court's ruling invalidating Arizona's voter identification law.

Kennedy, in a one-page order Thursday, told parties on both sides of the issue to file legal briefs by Wednesday. The high court would then presumably decide whether the requirements would remain in place temporarily.

    I don't see what purpose this action by the Justice Kennedy serves except to overturn the lower court, without actually overturning the lower court, just in time for the general election.

    That loud scream you heard was the left protesting. The dead, illegal, and felons all vote Dem. and represent about half of the registered Dem voters.

    Okay, so because I myself am a US Citizen and wrote that showing my citizenship certificate, registering and then voting is easy CNN chose not to post my comment? Perhaps this is why the courts continue to waste time and money on this nonsense because we who are foreigners and became us citizens keep getting ignored. Seems to me CNN only wants to post what favors the troubled ones with voting.
