Lawsuit against Indiana BMV alleges drivers were overcharged

Posted: Updated:

 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is facing new allegations that it overcharged drivers for multiple services.

Plaintiffs in the class-action suit could secure refunds for overcharges on vehicle registrations and other services if their lawsuit succeeds. The suit could also open the way to further discovery of overcharges by the BMV.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Indianapolis-based law firm Cohen and Malad filed the lawsuit in October. A Marion County Superior Court Judge denied the state's request to dismiss the lawsuit this week.

The suit follows on the heels of a similar legal battle. The BMV agreed to settle a previous lawsuit this past August and refund $30 million to residents who had been overcharged for driver's licenses.
