The California Department of Motor Vehicles office in the Arleta neighborhood of Los Angeles is seen Tuesday, April 9, 2019. A soccer fan claims in a lawsuit that the California DMV violated his First Amendment rights by rejecting a personalized license plate he said would celebrate his favorite team, but which the DMV said might be deemed offensive. The lawsuit says Jon Kotler applied for a plate that would read COYW, an abbreviation of "Come on You Whites," a slogan used by fans of London-based Fulham Football Club, referring to their signature white shirts.
