MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments in two cases challenging the state’s voter photo identification law for next month.

The justices announced Tuesday they would listen to arguments in both cases during a joint hearing on Feb. 25.

The Milwaukee branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the League of Women Voters have both challenged the law. Dane County judges struck the law down in both cases.

But the 4th District Court of Appeals ruled the law was constitutional in the League of Women Voters case, prompting the league to seek Supreme Court review. The justices in November decided to pluck the NAACP case out of the 2nd District Court of Appeals.

A federal judge is considering two other challenges to the law.
