BMV Commissioner May Face Contempt of Court Charge

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) – The commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is facing possible charges of contempt for failing to provide documents in a class action law suit.
 
A Marion County judge ordered Don Snemis on Wednesday to explain why the state agency hasn't handed over the documents by the court-ordered deadline of Sept. 29.
 
An Indianapolis-based law firm says the BMV is concealing information that could prove it overcharged millions of motorists through unauthorized license fees. The plaintiffs are seeking about 60,000 emails, meeting minutes and other records from the BMV. They hope the documents will confirm testimony from former director Matthew Foley, who said he warned top officials about the overcharges two years before they were acknowledged.
 
An attorney for the BMV says it didn't violate the judge's court order and needs more time to compile the requested documents.
