INDIANAPOLIS - A Marion County judge has ordered the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles to resume issuing personalized license plates, but that doesn't mean the agency will start doing so anytime soon.
BMV spokesman Josh Gillespie said the local judge has denied the state's request to stay a ruling that ordered it to resume selling vanity plates.
The BMV had suspended the plates' sales after a police officer sued the agency for revoking his license plate that read "OINK."
Judge James Osborn found the BMV violated the police officer's freedom of speech and also found the BMV's rules for issuing the plates unconstitutional.
Gillespie said Wednesday that the bureau also asked the Indiana Supreme Court for a stay the same day it notified the top court it will appeal Osborn's ruling.
