'COPSLIE' License Plate OK, N.H. Court Rules

May 07, 2014  | 

The New Hampshire Supreme Court has ruled that a man can have a vanity license plate reading "COPSLIE," saying that the regulation that the state Department of Motor Vehicles cited to bar him from that plate was "unconstitutionally vague," reports the Boston Globe.

The court said the application for the plate by David Montenegro was rejected under a regulation that bars plates "which a reasonable person would find offensive to good taste."

The court said it concluded that the restriction " 'authorizes or even encourages arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement' ... and is, therefore, unconstitutionally vague."

Because of its vagueness, the court held, the regulation violates the free speech right guaranteed in the New Hampshire state constitution.

I would think it stupid to attract attention to yourself in this way but if he wants attention I am sure he will get all he can handle.
