Judge Dismisses Va. Vet's License Plate Appeal

Posted:

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - A judge has dismissed an Iraq War veteran's appeal seeking to regain personalized license plates that include a term deemed offensive by some Arab-Americans.

Chesapeake Circuit Judge John W. Brown ruled that Sean Bujno didn't exhaust possible remedies through the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The DMV revoked the plate in 2011.

The plate reads: "ICUHAJI," which can be read to state: "I See You, Haji."

In 2012, Brown ruled that the DMV couldn't deny the plate on the basis that it denigrated individuals of a particular nationality.

The DMV notified Bujno in March that the plate is now being denied because it encourages or condones violence and is obscene or otherwise vulgar in nature. Brown's latest ruling came last week in Bujno's appeal of that decision.
