Reply To: Today they stamped “sex offender” on my driver’s license


Read this recently and thought it would be most appropriate here for those in OK who are now recipients of marked DLs/IDs and want to fight them:

“Recent SCOTUS Opinion in NIFLA v. Becerra ( is chock full of good material to use against marked DLs and IDs. It relies a good deal on Riley v. Nat’l Fed. of the Blind (, which isn’t surprising given that case’s holding that even factual speech is subject to compelled-speech analysis. It’s possible anyone in a marked-DL/ID state could easily win a case using this case and its citations, especially if some Wooley v. Maynard ( is tossed in for good measure. Marked DLs/IDs are easily intermediate scrutiny material (speaker-based speech), but probably strict scrutiny material (content-based speech).”

“There are so many gems in this case, but one from Kennedy in his Concurrence (joined by Roberts, Alito, and Gorsuch) stands out: “Governments must not be allowed to force persons to express a message contrary to their deepest convictions.”” Well, that is a swing against those states with marked-DLs/IDs, e.g. AL, FL, MS, & OK.
