A federal court has warned Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott to turnover evidence in the Voter ID case or the law will not be in effect by November.

In a sternly-worded order released late Monday, a three-judge panel in Washington said that if Texas doesn't turn-over key evidence in 48 hours, the July trial will be delayed further. Federal attorneys have repeatedly complained Abbott's staff have used legal maneuvers to avoid turning over important documents and keeping lawmakers from testifying.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has petitioned to throw out part of the Voting Rights Act, saying it’s unconstitutional.

Texas Republicans are fuming over the U.S. Justice Department’s rejection of the state’s Voter Identification law. KERA’s Bill Zeeble reports as a result of the ruling, primary voters may not have to produce a photo ID in order to cast a ballot this spring.

There is a high likelihood Texas’ April 3 primary will be delayed. That follows the failure of groups battling over election boundaries to reach an agreement Monday as KERA’s Shelley Kofler reports.
