ACLU and State of South Dakota come to settlement on vanity license plate suit

The State of South Dakota and the ACLU of South Dakota have settled a lawsuit regarding the approval process of vanity license plates. The ACLU had sued the state on the grounds it was violating the first amendment by arbitrarily approving and denying vanity license plates. As part of the settlement, the Department of Revenue will no longer use the criteria of quote “good taste and decency” when approving license plate requests. The settlement also says anyone who had a vanity plate under this “good taste and decency” policy refused is welcome to reapply.
