Indiana BMV asks court to delay vanity plate sales

– The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has asked the state Supreme Court for permission to continue its suspension on sales of vanity plates until a court case is settled.

The Indiana attorney general’s office announced Monday it had filed a request for a stay order in the case involving a license plate reading “0INK.”

A Marion County judge in May ordered the BMV to resume selling personalized license plates, which it hadn’t done in nearly a year due to a lawsuit by a Greenfield police officer who maintained it unconstitutionally refused to renew his plate.

The judge agreed with Officer Rodney Vawter, and told the BMV it had to resume selling vanity plates under certain stipulations.

The BMV appealed to the Indiana Supreme Court, and requested a stay order Friday.
