If you read the accounts of the oral argument in Arizona v. The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, such as this one from CNN, you would be unlikely to predict that the Court would side with the U.S. government against Arizona in an opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia. The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona challenged a 2004 Arizona law that required election officials there to refuse to register anyone who could not prove his or her citizenship, arguing that the state law conflicted with, and is trumped by, the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA requires all states to “accept and use” a specific federal form for voter registration that form asks whether the applicant is a citizen of the United States and over the age of eighteen. In this report, ABA Journal asks whether the decision is a "Scalia turnabout." But Marty Lederman at SCOTUSblog says that the decision may be a Pyrrhic victory for the federal government.
