    Appeals Court Upholds Arizona's Voter ID Requirement

    Appeals court upholds Arizona's voter ID requirement | Fox News

    Looks like the case was heard EN BANC meaning all the judges heard the case rather than the normal panel of 3 judges:

    A 12-member panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals says in a ruling Tuesday that there was evidence Arizona has racially polarized voting and a history of discrimination against Latinos.
    But the court concluded that no proof was offered to show that the ID requirement gave Latinos fewer opportunities to vote.
    The court, however, found that the federal National Voter Registration Act trumps another section of the Arizona law that requires people to prove their citizenship in order to vote.




    Caveat-I am guessing on this since I don't know off the top how many judges are on the 9th Circuit


    second Caveat-the Ninth circuit is the most overruled Circuit in the USA by the Supremes

    Hmmm... surprisingly little research and a surprising amount of error for someone in your claimed profession.

    In any event, the case is interesting since proof of citizenship is often the driving factor behind those supporting the ALEC/GOP efforts to impose state photo ID requirements across the nation (that pesky illegal alien vote, or perhaps just illegal votes by aliens -- E.T., phone in your ID).

    And you claim to have argued federal appeals? Better check 28 U.S.C. 46(c) on that tough en banc question.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I saw the headline on another board and posted it here. I did nothing more than that. so your attempt to attack me fails. and there are enough people here to know I am an attorney so you sort of fail again.

    and yes the 9th is the most overturned circuit

    No, just astonished that you don't know that a federal court of appeals panel is made up of three judges, unless it's an en banc decision or in the DC Circuit.

    duh I said the normal procedure is a three judge panel. I don't know how many judges are on the 9th Circuit without looking. Many courts have vacancies due to congressional wrangling and having not ever argued an en banc case I cannot recall if senior status judges take part

    This law discriminates against rich white people whose butlers are too lazy to carry their ID for them.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    this is what is known as derailing a thread because you want to attack me personally rather than deal with the subject matter. I didn't make any comment that would justify this sort of nonsense-you must be bitter from something else
