Man argues to put 'COPSLIE' on his vanity plates

The former David Montenegro is into messages both obscure (he's legally changed his name to "Human") and straightforward. It's his pursuit of the latter that's taken him in front of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, arguing to be allowed to display vanity license plates that say "COPSLIE." The state's DMV rejected his bid in 2010 under its standard of being "offensive to good taste."

But the plaintiff and the ACLU say that distinction violates the right to free speech, and even two of the supremes hearing the case say that standard is vague and subjective, though they have yet to rule. "If the person at the DMV happened to agree with the sentiment by chance said,'You know what, this isn't offensive to me' then he gets the plate," Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis challenged DMV attorney Richard Head.
