Indiana Supreme Court Rules Against Officer’s ‘0INK’ Plate

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana's highest court says state officials acted within their rights when denying a police officer a vanity license plate that said “0INK.'' 
 
The Indiana Supreme Court issued a ruling Friday citing a recent U.S. Supreme Court case that found Texas hadn't violated free speech rights by refusing a license plate featuring the Confederate battle flag. 
 
Indiana's high court said messages on state-issued license plates amount to government speech.
 
A Marion County judge initially ruled in favor of the officer, prompting the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to suspended Indiana's personalized license plate program.
 
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, which represents the officer, says the BMV has approved other questionable plates.
