Won U.S. Courts of Appeals

Roach v. Stouffer

ADF attorneys win victory in decision that upholds ruling against state’s unconstitutional license plate approval process

Baby's Feet

Summary

In 2006, ADF attorneys filed suit in federal court against the Missouri Department of Revenue after two Missouri senators - both responsible for oveseeing specialty license-plate applications - objected to the message expressed on a plate proposed by Choose Life of Missouri. In 2009, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that the Show-Me state's approval process allowed for "viewpoint discrimination and is therefore unconstitutional."
