Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has asked a federal judge to stay a lawsuit over Kansas' voter proof-of-citizenship law while another case he initiated is being heard.
Kobach filed the request yesterday in federal court.
The lawsuit in question was filed against him this November by the American Civil Liberties Union.
The ACLU wants to prevent Kobach from setting up different registration systems for voters based on whether they use state or federal forms.
The federal form doesn't require proof of U.S. citizenship.
