Judge McKinney has denied an injunction about the use of voter ID in the November election. Marion county voters will vote on whether to increase funding for the Health and Hospital Corporation. No interlocutory appeal will be filed, just because I don't have the money for the filing fee. The basis for the renewed motion for injunction is that voter ID has been struck down as unconstitutional by the state courts, in a case which is not yet final.

"Entry Discussing Second Motion for Preliminary Injunction
The plaintiff’s second motion for preliminary injunction (dkt 60), which would block
enforcement of the Indiana Voter I.D. Law, Senate Enrolled Act No. 483, codified at various
sections of the Indiana Code, at the elections to be held on November 3, 2009, is denied.
The reason for this ruling is that, as discussed in the court’s ruling on the plaintiff’s previous
motion for temporary injunctive relief, the plaintiff has not shown a reasonable likelihood
of success on the merits of his currently pending claims. The same conclusion dictates the
denial of the second motion for preliminary injunction.
