Recently, I reported that a judge in New Jersey had declared unconstitutional its child support enforcement scheme that automatically suspended the driver’s license of anyone owing back child support in a given amount. Now it appears Missouri is doing much the same thing.
And the organization Equal Justice Under Law doesn’t like it one bit. It’s suing the state for suspending the license to drive of anyone owing $2,500 in child support or who’s been in arrears for three months, whichever amount is less. This article makes some telling points about the advisability of doing so (Liberty Unyielding, 3/22/19).
