The U.S. Supreme Court made a rare correction on Wednesday to an error in Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s scathing dissent of the majority opinion on Texas’ controversial voter ID law — a dissent that had been highly touted by critics of the law.
The dissent attracted widespread attention, in part because Ginsburg and fellow dissenting justices were up all night Friday, into Saturday morning, writing their statement skewering the law. They came down hard on the majority opinion by the Supreme Court to allow Texas to enforce the voter ID law in the upcoming November elections.
In her seven-page dissent, Ginsburg wrote that the law “may prevent more than 600,000 registered Texas voters from voting in person for lack of compliant identification.” Her dissent was widely covered in liberal-leaning media outlets, with one declaring it offered myriad reasons “why Texas’ new voter ID law is racist.”
