The state of Texas and the Justice Department gave opening statements Monday in a trial over Texas' new voter ID law, setting the stage for a legal battle over the federal Voting Rights Act.
He also said the Justice Department would not be able to prove that any voters and particularly minority voters would be hindered by the law.
Mr. Mortara said the state's new statute is in line with similar laws that have cleared legal challenges in Indiana and Georgia.
