INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - As many as 4 million Indiana drivers could become
plaintiffs in a lawsuit alleging the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has
overcharged for driverís licenses since 2007.
WISH-TV and the Indianapolis Star report Marion Superior Court Judge Heather

Indianapolis attorney Irwin Levin filed suit in March claiming all Indiana

The suit seeks more than $30 million in damages. It claims Indiana has more
than 4 million licensed drivers.
BMV spokesman Dennis Rosebrough has said the agency doesnít comment on
