Pa. court fails with its voter ID nondecision

What a shame that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court did not rule on the voter ID issue ("Voter ID Law Returned to Lower Court," Sept. 19). Was this playing politics, with three Republicans and one Democrat voting with the majority? Sending it back to the same judge who originally said it was OK does not make any sense.
If Judge Robert Simpson rules for voter ID because he thinks there is no voter disenfranchisement, he is absolutely wrong.
There have been only 7,000 to 8,000 voters who have gotten a voter ID. The distribution of these has not been readily available, and there is a lot of confusion.
I agree with the minority opinion of the Supreme Court that an injunction against should have been issued. What is the Supreme Court for if not to make a decision? To have not done so is outrageous.
