Lawyers for Gov. Corbett on Monday asked the Commonwealth Court judge who struck down the state's voter ID law this month to reconsider his ruling.
The 39-page filing allows the Corbett administration to keep alive its appeal hopes, but Joshua Maus, a spokesman for the Governor's Office of General Counsel, said, "It would be premature to say whether we would move forward with an appeal."
The posttrial motion argues that Judge Bernard L. McGinley made numerous errors in reaching his decision that the law, one of the strictest in the nation, was unconstitutional.
McGinley wrote: "Voting laws are designed to assure free and fair election; the voter ID law does not further that goal."
