Closing Arguments Postponed in Voter ID Trial

Closing arguments in the trial of Pennsylvania's voter-identification law were postponed Wednesday, but the state's legal team filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley scheduled the arguments for today and said he'd review the motion. Most of Wednesday’s abbreviated court session was taken up by a closed-door hearing on the plaintiffs' analysis of how many voters couldn't obtain a valid photo ID before last year's election.
State officials objected to the testimony, but the judge didn't immediately rule on whether it would be admitted as evidence. The plaintiffs' lawyers said the state's trying to distract attention from problems with the free, voting-only IDs that are supposed to be readily available to registered voters.
The state's lawyers say earlier wrinkles have been ironed out
