It’s always drive-time radio in Los Angeles. I just spent the afternoon maneuvering around this sweltering city, and today’s Supreme Court decision to uphold Indiana’s voter identification law was part of a feature segment at least twice this afternoon on NPR member station 89.3 KPCC here.
Rick Hasen of Loyola Marymount University and electionlawblog.org (who filed a friend-of-the-court brief on this case) broke down the specifics of the decision on AirTalk with Larry Mantle (listen here with Real Player). Today Hasen wrote for the Huffington Post that he believes this case “will encourage further litigation, because it relegates challenges to laws imposing onerous burdens on a small group of voters to “as applied” challenges, but those challenges will be difficult to win.”
