KU fan fights to keep anti-Mizzou license plate

A St. Charles man with an apparent disdain for University of Missouri athletics is fighting the state's Department of Revenue in hopes of keeping his "MZU SUX" license plate.

In October, the Administrative Hearing Commission which is under Missouri's Office of Administration and has jurisdiction over statutorily specified administrative matters ruled that Toby Gettler's personalized plate is not obscene or profane and therefore not subject to recall.

The Department of Revenue is appealing the decision, and the case is now in the Western District Court of Appeals.

The department issued Gettler the "MZU SUX" license plate in 2009. In hearing documents, the commission wrote that the plate's configuration stands for "Mizzou sucks," with a footnote that says it's "a reference to the quality of the University of Missouri athletic program." Gettler chose the vanity plate's wording "because he is a fan of the University of Kansas," according to commission documents.

4. Locking - not of national interest

Perhaps the Kansas or Missouri groups, or Sports.
