Central Indiana Woman’s License Restored by Injunction

August 13, 2012

A central Indiana judge has granted a preliminary injunction restoring driving privileges for a woman whose license was suspended in June for not having auto insurance even though she didn’t own a car to drive.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana said the ruling in Marion County could have an impact on others who also have had their licenses suspended. Bureau of Motor Vehicles spokesman Dennis Rosebrough said Friday the agency had no comment because the ruling was being reviewed.

The lawsuit contends Lourrinne White didn’t need to have insurance when her license was suspended she didn’t own a car and was not driving. ACLU of Indiana’s legal director Ken Falk says the ruling makes clear that possessing a license does not necessarily require someone to have insurance.
