Tennessee court to hear challenge of voter ID law

Opponents of the state’s new voter identification law will get another chance to see it overturned, as a Nashville court set a date for a hearing on their legal challenge.

The Court of Appeals agreed Thursday to hear oral arguments in a suit filed by the city of Memphis and two voters, which argues that requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls violates the state and federal constitutions.

The hearing will take place Oct. 18, one day after early voting begins in Tennessee.
