Reversal Allows Renewal of Religious License Plate

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's Bureau of Motor Vehicles has reversed an earlier ruling and decided that a woman may have a personalized license plate carrying the words "BE GODS."

The reversal comes after Liz Ferris sued the BMV in federal court for refusing to issue a new plate carrying the same words she had on other plates for several years. Ferris contended in her lawsuit that the BMV was discriminating against her for expressing her beliefs.

Her suit was filed the same day the Indiana Court of Appeals upheld the constitutionality of the state's "In God We Trust" license plate.
