The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature on Jan. 6 asked a federal court to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to prevent the purging of up to 209,000 registered voters in the battleground state.

The Legislature's attorneys asked the court to at least put the lawsuit on hold while a separate case seeking to remove the voters works its way through the state courts. There are two lawsuits pending related to potentially removing the names from voter rolls.
