Court stays suspension of ID law



Published: Mon, October 30, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.



CINCINNATI (AP) -- A federal appeals court on Sunday put on hold a judge's suspension of Ohio's new identification requirements for absentee voting, meaning voters applying for the early ballots must continue giving proof of their identity.

The ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a request by State Attorney General Jim Petro to stay the order issued Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Algenon Marbley in a lawsuit challenging Ohio's new law, which requires all voters to show proof of identification when casting a ballot.

"The attorney general is very pleased that he was successful in stopping the federal court from interfering in state election procedure," said Petro spokesman Mark Anthony.
