 American Civil Liberties Union : Voting Rights Advocates Hail Court Decision in Georgia Photo ID Case
ATLANTA - In a major victory for Georgia voters, a federal judge today blocked a controversial new law that dramatically restricts the types of photo identification that may be used when voting.

The lawsuit was filed against state and local election officials and asked the federal court to declare H.B. 244 "unconstitutional, null and void," and issue both a preliminary and permanent injunction against implementation of the law.
