Walden Inn and Conference Center, DePauw University, 2 West Seminary Street, Greencastle, Indiana
Mark Studler filed suit against the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles ("BMV") and Ronald Stiver, in his official capacity as Commissioner of the BMV, challenging Indiana Code section 9-18-24.5-1, which authorizes a speciality license plate featuring an "In God We Trust" design. The BMV offers the "In God We Trust" plate at no additional charge. Studler, who paid a $40 administrative fee to obtain an environmental specialty plate, contended that providing the "In God We Trust" plate for no fee violates Article I, section 23 of the Indiana Constitution. Both parties filed motions for summary judgment in the trial court; Studler's motion was denied and the BMV's motion was granted as a final judgment. Studler appeals the grant of summary judgment to the BMV.
The Scheduled Panel Members are: Judges Robb, Barnes and Crone
