Defendants move for judgment on the pleadings pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(c). (Doc. 94.)"

    Sweetie-pie, it seems that the defendants didn't file "a counter" so much as they just asked for a summary judgment.

    The judge does indeed seem to have denied both the injunction and the request for a judgment, hun.
    ymmv
    I may be wrong.

    Re: DOJ loses NC voter ID case in federal court.

    A Federal Court smacked down Eric Holder’s Justice Department today when it refused to block North Carolina’s “controversial” voter ID law. The law, which simply requires voters to bring a valid ID to prove their citizenship, was attacked in a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department last September.

    Apparently Holder and the like are happy when non-citizens vote.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Y'all sure skeered of them voter ID laws.

    God forbid if people have to prove they are who they say they are and only vote once. Holder needs a few more slaps and to Holder I say this:

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The judge is a Republican stooge. Backing a Republican law is not news.
    Proud to be a tax and spend leftist.

    Proud supporter of the real Second Amendment.
