An Indiana woman whose license was supposed to be suspended in 2004 for repeatedly driving without a license says the state 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 Marion 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 that 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 today that a lawyer for the agency was reviewing the case.
