DOJ asking judge to put a halt on ruling to stop Voter ID Law
MADISON -- The Wisconsin Justice Department is asking a judge to put a halt on a ruling to stop the Voter ID Law.
Earlier this month, a Dane County judge ruled to temporarily stop the Voter ID Law. A second Dane County judge issued a permanent injunction against the law.
Monday, March 19th, the Department of Justice said the state will appeal, and it believes the state will win the appeal.
The DOJ wants a judge to put a hold on the ruling, saying all the confusion over whether the law is in effect or not could cause more harm than good for voters in Wisconsin.
