Wash. Man Fights for 'WAR SUX' License Plate

A Washtenaw County man is suing the state over its refusal to grant a license plate that says "WAR SUX.''

David DeVarti is joining a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union that challenges how plates are judged by the Secretary of State. The lawsuit in Grand Rapids federal court accuses the state of violating the First Amendment by broadly controlling speech.

DeVarti says his request for a six-letter anti-war message was rejected as offensive.
