Federal Court Denies Efforts to Stop Florida’s Choose Life Plate
A Federal Appeals Court ruling on a suit filed in January 2002 refused to halt the Florida Choose Life license plate and gave a brief High School Civics lesson to the plaintiffs. Since the opponents to the Florida Choose Life plate had never applied for a plate of their own, and since all suits against the Choose Life license plate in Florida have been unsuccessful, it is interesting to see what the Appeals Court stated. The U.S. 11th Circuit Appeals Court ruled, “The first amendment does not require states to authorize the speech of those who have expressed no interest in speaking; it only protects the rights of those who wish to speak.” The court further upbraided the plaintiff in its opinion saying, “Appellants were counseled in a previous incarnation of this case to apply for a specialty license plate before bringing a First Amendment challenge to Fla Stat 320.08058(30). Hildreth v. Dickenson No. 99-583-CIV-J-21-A, slip op. at 1 (M.D.Fla Dec 22, 1999). Rather than appealing the District Court’s admonition, Appellants chose to try again in this case.” This is a significant ruling as it establishes, at least in the U.S. 11th Circuit, that states with reasonable application processes are not discriminating when the opposition does not use that process to apply for a plate and they cannot claim standing in court unless they do.
