Alabama judge dismisses felon voting suit

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Montgomery judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union over registering ex-felons to vote.

Circuit Judge Tracy McCooey said today the ACLU's clients lacked legal standing to sue. Two had not tried to register to vote. The third client had attempted to register, but had not exhausted possible appeals in probate court before going to circuit court.
