North Carolina’s Voter ID Law has some MORE support that I, SilenceDogood2010, have stumbled across.
Most recently, it was brought to my attention that in August of 2016, those nutty & wacky court justices of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals printed the following in one of their opinions;
Now, upon further research, I find that the US Supreme Court issued basically the same statement in 2013.
That statement IS:
“Federal courts are courts of limited subject-matter jurisdiction, possessing only that power authorized by the Constitution and by Congress.”
OK legal scholars, please tell me again how the lower district courts, and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, has jurisdiction over a case involving the State of North Carolina & its Voter ID Legislation? What about over ‘Election Districts’ & how they were drawn? And lastly, let us revisit N.C.’s Amendment 1, Same Sex Marriage — A Constitutional Amendment passed by the voters of the State of N.C. . . . How does a Federal District Court have any say in how a State modifies its ‘Constitution’? Or the authority to overrule it?

Election Disputes – 28 USC 1344 – This states what the federal district courts have control over . . . aka jurisdiction concerning election issues.
