Purcell v. Gonzalez, 06A375 (06-532) and 06A379 (06-533)

An order entered by a two-judge motions panel of the Ninth Circuit enjoining Arizona from enforcing a proposition's provisions, which sought to combat voter fraud by requiring voters to present proof of citizenship when they register to vote and to present identification when they vote on election day, is vacated in view of the impending election, the necessity for clear guidance to the State of Arizona, and due to the Court of Appeals' failure to give deference to the discretion of the district court.
