We May Learn Voter ID's Fate Today

The fate of Pennsylvania's much-debated Voter ID law was placed in the hands of Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson earlier this month and he said, at that time, that today might be the day we get the result.

To mark the occasion, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Tom Infield offers this in-depth profile of a judge who has spent much of his professional career far from the glare of the public spotlight. The most important item might be near the end, though, where it's noted that Mr. Simpson may not have the last word anyway, since the losing side could appeal to the state's Supreme Court.

The law's bumpy ride isn't over yet.
