(Indianapolis, Ind.) - A license plate lawsuit against the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has been thrown out.
The Indiana Youth Group wants a license
plate of its own offered to Hoosier vehicle
According to the Indianapolis Star, the American Civil Liberties Union had sued the BMV in September after the Indian Youth Group’s request for a license plate supporting gay teenagers was twice denied.
The complaint argued the BMV’s standards for accepting new plates from non-profit groups was too arbitrary.
The BMV said it turned down the youth group’s application because the money would have been used to pay the group’s staff salaries. The group also failed to show its services have a statewide impact.
The Indiana Youth Group told the Indianapolis Star they plan to apply for the new plate a third time.
