INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Bloomington woman whose license was supposed to be suspended in 2004 for repeatedly driving without a license says Indiana's Bureau of Motor Vehicles didn't take action for eight years, waiting until she had obtained a license and a job that requires her to drive.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana took her case but a Monroe County judge declined to bar the agency from enforcing the suspension. The ACLU is appealing that decision and attorney Ken Falk says the suspension is temporarily on hold.
The ACLU argues the state was entitled to suspend Leslee Orndorff's driver's license in 2004, but not after what the ACLU calls an "extreme and prejudicial delay."
A BMV spokesman said Tuesday a lawyer for the agency was reviewing the case.
