Wisconsin voter ID foes ask court to reconsider

voter idCivil rights advocates have officially filed a petition asking a federal appeals court to reconsider a ruling that reinstated Wisconsin's voter photo identification law.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Advancement Project are challenging the Republican-authored law. A federal judge blocked the measure earlier this year but a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that Wisconsin election officials could implement the law while that court considers the case. As a result, The state Government Accountability Board, which oversees Wisconsin elections, has been working feverishly to get the law in place in time for the Nov. 4 elections.

U.S. moves to block suit against Iran-focused group

DOJWarning of potential damage to U.S. national security, the Justice Department on Friday asked a federal judge to halt a civil lawsuit against one of the most prominent private organizations fighting Iran's nuclear program.

The invocation of the state secrets privilege in Greek shipping magnate Victor Restis's lawsuit against United Against Nuclear Iran is unusual because the U.S. Government is not a party to the litigation, but is insisting that allowing the suit between the private parties to proceed any further will jeopardize American secrets that must be kept under wraps.

After the interview, a report surfaced that Thompson, an employee of McKenna Bros. Paving, had been fired for speaking to the media. The party had been held in part for company owners Marc and Matthew McKenna, party guest Charles Fryer said Thursday.

Wisconsin photo-ID law gets appeals court blessing

Scott WalkerA federal appeals court on Friday gave Wisconsin the green light to implement its controversial photo ID law for this year's elections.

The order from a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, delivered just hours after oral arguments in the case, brought widespread criticism from voting rights groups that say the law will reduce turnout among poor and minority voters.

The panel, comprised of judges named by Republican presidents, didn't issue its decision on the state's appeal of a district judge's ruling that struck down the law. But it said the state could impose the new requirement in the meantime.

Campaigners: Obama immigration reform delay 'a slap to face' of Latinos

Immigration reform delayedPresident Barack Obama will delay his long-promised executive action on immigration until after the November midterm elections, White House officials said on Saturday in remarks to the press that blamed “Republicans’ extreme politicisation of this issue”.

The president subsequently gave an interview to NBC, scheduled for broadcast on Sunday morning, in which he said election-year politics were “not the reason” for his decision.

Bush-Era Wiretapping Memos Released

Bush era memosThe Justice Department released two decade-old memos Friday night, offering the fullest public airing to date of the Bush administration’s legal justification for the warrantless wiretapping of Americans’ phone calls and e-mails — a program that began in secret after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The broad outlines of the argument — that the president has inherent constitutional power to monitor Americans’ communications without a warrant in a time of war — were known, but the sweep of the reasoning becomes even clearer in the memos written by then-Assistant Attorney General Jack Goldsmith, who was head of President George W. Bush’s Office of Legal Counsel.
