Sen. Berger Statement on US Supreme Court’s Ruling in Favor of Legislative Leaders
Raleigh, N.C. — Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8–1 that legislative leaders can intervene in litigation to defend the state’s voter ID law.
Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released the following statement regarding the ruling: “North Carolinians deserve to have their laws vigorously defended in court. Gov. Cooper and Attorney General Stein’s opposition to voter ID has resulted in them intentionally sandbagging the defense of a law the majority of North Carolinians support. Today the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed that. I’m thankful for today’s ruling and look forward to fighting to implement our state’s voter ID law.”
