Woman wins appeal for 'GAYSROK' license plate
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 06:18 AM by Champ
SALT LAKE CITY - The state of Utah can't block Elizabeth Solomon from using her license plate to tell the world "GAYSROK," an administrative law judge here has ruled.

Jane Phan, an administrative law judge with the Utah State Tax Commission, said the state has no good reason to prevent the Park City woman from having that plate - which can be read "Gays are OK" or "Gays Rock" - or another one saying, "GAYRYTS."

"The narrow issue before us is whether a reasonable person would believe the terms 'gays are OK' and 'gay rights' are, themselves, offensive to good taste and decency. It is the conclusion of the commission that a reasonable person would not," Phan wrote.

It's not yet an outright victory for Solomon since the state can appeal the July 19 decision.

"We're discussing it, and we have 30 days to do that," Barry Conover, deputy director of the commission, which oversees Utah's Department of Motor Vehicles, said Wednesday.
