Legal Protest To "In God We Trust" Plates Tossed

Last updated on Tuesday, November 18, 2008

(STATEHOUSE) - The Indiana State Court of Appeals has rejected a lawsuit claiming the state’s “In God We Trust” license plate is unconstitutional.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed suit on behalf of Fort Wayne resident Mark Studler. He maintained the BMV gave preferential treatment to motorists wanting the plates.

The "In God We Trust" plate is offered as an alternative to the standard plate without the additional $15 fee charged for other specialty license plates.

Studler's team is already working on an appeal.
