Dallas News: Federal judge rules Texas voter ID law was filed with intent to discriminate
"Today's ruling is a crucial step in the six-year journey towards justice for Texas voters since this restrictive voter ID law was passed," Danielle Lang, deputy director of voting rights at the Campaign Legal Center, which represents voters in the case, said in a written statement.
"Judge Ramos was absolutely correct in her judgment that this law was designed to harm minority voters and cannot stand," Lang said. "SB 14 was expertly crafted to harm minority voters in order to minimize their voice just as their political power was growing. Legislators must respond to their electorate, not silence their voters."
