Hearing in “OINK” plate lawsuit rescheduled

– A central Indiana judge has delayed until April a hearing in a police officer’s lawsuit that accuses state officials of violating his rights by revoking his vanity license plate “0INK.”

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles in July stopped offering vanity plates until the case is decided.

Marion County Judge James Osborn this week rescheduled a hearing on the lawsuit for April 9. WISH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1lHvQz0) the hearing had been scheduled for early March.

Greenfield police Officer Rodney Vawter’s lawsuit contends that the BMV’s decision to revoke his vanity license plate violated his free speech rights. The agency revoked his plate after three years, saying its content was “offensive or misleading.”

The hearing is on a motion for summary judgment by the American Civil Liberties Union, which represents Vawter.
