SCOTUS declines to intervene in FL felon voting case…for now

The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to weigh in on Florida’s fight over felon voting, choosing not to overturn a lower court’s decision to keep hundreds of thousands of poor felons from joining the voter rolls ahead of this year’s elections. Thursday’s decision, which was not accompanied by a written ruling, means that felons who can’t afford to pay off all court fines, fees and restitution to victims are still unable to register to vote. Three of the court’s liberal justices, led by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, disagreed in a written dissent. Lawrence Mower, The Miami Herald.
