Federal Judge Denies 'JN36TN' License Plate

Shawn Byrne, a West Rutland Vermont resident, submitted a request with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a 'JN36TN' vanity license plate. The plate was rejected under DMV policies which do not allow plates that make any reference to race, religion, color, deity, ethnic heritage, gender, sexual orientation, disability status or political affiliation.

Attorneys for the DMV argue that allowing a 'JN36TN' license plate would be a state endorsement of a particular religious viewpoint. The problem is that the state agency has issued other plates with religious references. According to Jeremy Tedesco, attorney for Byrne from Alliance Defense Fund, his client would have received the plate if it meant "John, 36 year old, Tennessee."
