New Hampshire Court Allows 'COPSLIE' License Plate

(Reuters) – A New Hampshire man has the right to drive around the New England state with a license plate reading “COPSLIE,” the state’s top court ruled on Wednesday.

The state Supreme Court upheld a challenge to Department of Motor Vehicles’ rules, finding they were unconstitutionally broad by allowing officials to deny requests for vanity license plates that “a reasonable person would find offensive to good taste.”

The man, who in 2012 legally changed his name to “human” from David Montenegro, requested the plate in 2010 and sued the state when it denied his request, instead offering a place with his second choice, “GR8GOVT.”
