DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The plaintiffs in the years-long court battle over Texas' voter I.D. law, say they're giving up the fight.

Opponents of the law tell a federal judge they will not pursue further changes or remedies. In a court filing, plaintiffs in the seven year long challenge to the law requiring Texas voters to present photo identification, say the case is settled.

The move follows a U.S. Supreme Court decision this summer, that Texas lawmakers did not intentionally discriminate when they created new congressional and state House maps in 2013.

The state revised the voter I.D. law last year, allowing people without acceptable identification to vote, after signing an affidavit.
