Well, a court decision I agree with.  The court said not to implement this law for this election, but to begin implementation next year.  Good.  That gives voters enough time to get their ID's and for no disenfranchisement to occur due to the law.

A judge on Tuesday blocked Pennsylvania's divisive voter identification requirement from going into effect on Election Day, delivering a hard-fought victory to Democrats who said it was a ploy to defeat President Barack Obama and other opponents who said it would prevent the elderly and minorities from voting.

The decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson on the law requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID could be appealed to the state Supreme Court.

However, Simpson based his decision on guidelines given to him days ago by the high court justices, and it could easily be the final word on the law just five weeks before the Nov. 6 election.

Simpson ordered the state not to enforce the photo ID requirement in this year's presidential election but will allow it to go into full effect next year.

Awesome!   Didn't Texas also also do something similar or maybe they even said it was unconstitutional.  It's
probably on the front page of this board somewhere but I only have time for the occasional peek in here.
Anyway, great news.  :)
