Holmes v. Moore

Docket number

Initially, the Court ruled that a new statute implementing constitutional amendment requiring photo identification to vote was formulated with an unconstitutional intent to discriminate based on race. After two new justices joined the Court, the legislative defendants asked the Court to rehear the case and the Court granted that request. Ultimately, the Court reversed its earlier opinion and ruled that the implementing statute did not violate equal protection clause.
