TUCSON, Arizona: This week retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor will be sitting on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for two days. O'Connor will be hearing approximately five cases. One of the cases involves a voting-rights case. Specifically, O'Connor will be hearing Gonzales v. The State of Arizona which involves 2004's Proposition 200. Proposition 200, which was approved by voters, requires voters to show identification before voting. In 2008 the state won the case after arguing that the proposition was not intentionally discriminatory.[1]
