State faces suit over vanity license plates
A judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit challenging Michigan's policy on vanity license plates.
Critics say the state is violating the First Amendment through a vague policy that allows it to veto plates perceived to be controversial.
Grand Rapids federal Judge Gordon Quist said Friday the lawsuit can move ahead, rejecting arguments that speech on vehicle plates belongs to the government.
Matwyuk had trouble getting a plate that uses a variation of the word “infidel.”
The state won't give DeVarti a plate that says "WAR SUX."
