The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey filed suit against the Motor Vehicles Commission, alleging the program, which requires additional proof of identification before a driver's license is granted, was being implemented without public comment and without following regulatory and legislative procedure.
The program "was stopped on a technicality. It's a technicality called democracy," said ACLU-NJ executive director Deborah Jacobs at a press conference Tuesday in Newark.
The delay means the new licenses, which feature a gold star in the upper-right corner to indicate the license is a federally approved identification document usable to board a domestic airline flight or enter a federal building, will not be issued. Legal arguments are scheduled for Aug. 3 in Mercer County Superior Court, the (Newark) Star-Ledger reported Tuesday.
