MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in a pair of lawsuits challenging the state's voter photo identification law.

The NAACP's Milwaukee branch and the League of Women voters have challenged the law in separate actions.

Dane County judges struck the law down in both cases. But the 4th District Court of Appeals deemed the requirement constitutional in the League of Women Voters' case, prompting the league to take it to the high court. Meanwhile the justices have decided to take the NAACP case out of the 2nd District Court of Appeals and decide it themselves.

Oral arguments are set for Tuesday morning. The court has allotted an hour on each case.

Two other challenges are pending in federal court in Milwaukee.
