NASHVILLE - A controversial Tennessee law requiring voters to show government-issued photo identification at the polling places could soon face a court challenge if not changed, an attorney warned Wednesday.

"A suit is being contemplated, and we've been attempting to get it resolved through other, political means, which appear to have been fruitless - at this point," said attorney Gerard Stranch, of Nashville. "We have hopes that the Legislature will take up the issue in January and fix the law."
