SCOTUS to consider NC voter law

The Supreme Court has agreed to take up a fight over whether Republican state legislators are entitled to defend North Carolina’s voter identification law in court.

The North Carolinian state legislators claim that their state's Democratic attorney general is unlikely to offer a defense of the law robust enough to preserve it.

“Attorneys in our office have worked diligently on behalf of the state throughout this case, and will continue to do so,” Nazneen Ahmed, a spokesperson for North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, said in an email to POLITICO.

The justices on Wednesday granted a request from the GOP state Senate and House leaders to take up a federal appeals court ruling that denied their request to intervene in a suit the state’s chapter of the NAACP brought against the voter ID law.
