A useful example here of how the cases the Supreme Court refuse to hear can be as important as the ones they do see. In this instance, they have refused to hear a case about a Wisconsin law requiring one of eight types of ID being required in order to vote. This has been the subject of legal challenges due to the disproportionate affect this has on the state’s black and Hispanic population, yet in not seeing the case the Court are, in essence, upholding the constitutionality of this law.
