Ind. Gov't. - More on "BMV seeks clarity on judge's ruling on Indiana Youth Group license plates" [Updated]

Updating this ILB entry from last evening, Tom LoBianco of the AP has a brief story today that includes:

The BMV has asked an administrative law judge to review her order allowing the Indiana Youth Group to continue selling specialty license plates. * * *

An administrative judge ruled in May that the BMV erred in immediately suspending the plate program last year without giving the group 30 days' notice.

BMV Commissioner Scott Waddell directed the administrative judge to assess the difference between "selling" and "auctioning" low-number license plates.

[Updated at 2 PM] The ILB has now obtained a copy of the BMV Commissioner's "Order of Remand" that concludes:
The ALJ is instructed to issue a modified Non Final Order that reflects the ALJ's conclusions following consideration of the foregoing. Until a Final Order is issued by me, as the ultimate authority for the BMV, NG's participation in the specialty group recognition program shall remain suspended.
Note that the BMV is both a party and the "ultimate authority" in this dispute.
