NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —The commonwealth of Kentucky will have to pay more than $150,000 over a license plate that says “I’m God.”
The money will go to Bennie Hart, who applied for the license plate about four years ago.
He had a similar license plate in Ohio before moving to Kentucky.
Kentucky transportation officials denied his application, saying it did not meet their requirements.
The ACLU and Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a First Amendment lawsuit on Hart’s behalf. He ended up winning in court last year.
Now a judge is ordering Kentucky to pay his attorney fees and litigation costs.
