A judge has scheduled a summer trial on the future of the state voter ID law.
The requirements of the new Pennsylvania law were temporarily lifted in October when a Commonwealth Court judge ruled that voters in the general election would not need to follow its requirement of showing acceptable photo identification.
Judge Robert Simpson on Tuesday issued an order scheduling a trial for July 15 in Harrisburg.
A representative of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, one of the parties behind the challenge to the voter ID law, said the plaintiffs will ask the court to extend its preliminary injunction until the legal case concludes.
The judge wrote in his order that he intends to determine by March 21 if there will be a change to the injunction. Municipal primary elections are scheduled for May 21.
