UPDATE: Wis. attorney general to appeal voter ID ruling
MADISON (AP) -
Wisconsin's attorney general says he will appeal a judge's ruling to stop the state's new voter identification law.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said Wednesday he will move quickly to bring the ruling before an appellate court. He says he is confident the law will be upheld.
Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan granted the temporary injunction Tuesday. It stops the contentious law from being in effect for the state's April 3 presidential primary election.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin has also filed a formal complaint with the state's Judicial Commission to investigate Flanagan for signing a petition in November to recall GOP Gov. Scott Walker. They say Flanagan failed to maintain impartiality.
