INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- An administrative law judge ruled that the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles improperly revoked a gay youth group's specialty license plate.

The judges says although the Indiana youth group did violate state law by suggesting, requiring and receiving unauthorized payments for low-numbered license plates, the action didn't constitute a sale or auction of low-digit license plates that would have supported last year's immediate revocation of its plate.

The judge recommends that the BMV reinstate the Indiana Youth Group's license plate and if the BMV doesn't appeal the ruling within 18 days the order becomes final.

A BMV spokesperson says the commissioner will act on the ruling within the alloted time.
