ACLU: Injunction upheld in 'Tru-ID' challenge

TRENTON - (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union says a state judge has upheld a temporary restraining order that blocks stricter requirements for people seeking to obtain or renew driver's licenses in New Jersey.

The order was issued May 7 after the ACLU and others claimed the state's motor vehicle commission had improperly tried to impose new standards, known as TRU-ID, without publishing details or soliciting public comment as required under state law.

Superior Court Judge Paul Innes upheld the order after a hearing on Monday. It will now likely remain in effect at least until oral arguments are made on Aug. 3.

MVC officials have said that any delays in implementing the standards would pose a serious disruption for drivers and adversely affect other program changes the MVC is planning.
