Michigan fan sues to keep ‘G0BLUE’ license plate after state reassigned it

The guy is an attorney and he screws this up!

[wapo.st]

Hardig, 66, is now suing Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson in an effort to keep the plate, alleging that state officials reassigned it prematurely and without notifying him. In his seven-page lawsuit filed Nov. 22 in the Michigan Court of Claims, Hardig requests that a judge order Benson to give it back.

On Nov. 30, Hardig lost his first battle. Judge James Redford denied his motion to issue a temporary restraining order that would have forced state officials to reissue the plate to Hardig while the case works its way through the court. In an order, Redford wrote that Hardig had not shown that he would suffer “an immediate and irreparable injury” without immediate action.

In an email to The Post, Benson’s spokeswoman Angela Benander said the department has not yet been served with Hardig’s lawsuit and declined to comment on the case. But she included a copy of the renewal notice that she said was sent to Hardig, one that showed that his vehicle registration expired on Oct. 2, more than a month before he tried to renew it.

In his suit, Hardig said he believes he had until this month to renew his plate because state law determines that vehicle registrations expire on owners’ birthdays. The renewal notice for “G0BLUE” lists an expiration date of Oct. 2 — Hardig’s father’s birthday — not Hardig’s, which is in December.

Sounds like someone's cheating.

You snooze you loose. The state didn't do anything wrong and he should know what the expiration date is.

Not so sure about that. The vehicle and the plate were both registered to him according to the article. The state law states they expire on the owners birthdate.

The state law would trump whatever is on the renewal notice, which an incorrect date would be considered a clerical error when the plate was transferred. I guarantee you if this was the other way around and the notice said the month after his birthdate but it actually expired on his birthday they would write him the ticket and make him pay a late fee.

I guess the lawyers will figure it all out.

My question would be is there a law or precedent for what happens when you do a "family transfer". Does the expiration date remain with the original registrant's birthdate (the father) or is it supposed to switch to the new registrant (the son)? If it's supposed to switch, then they'd probably charge you X amount for the additional 2 months at the time of transfer (and did that happen?).

Hardig is suing Michigan state officials to keep the “G0BLUE” personalized license plate that his father had for decades until he died in 2020 and it was transferred to his son.
