Fox Valley man settles discrimination case against DMV

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Fox Valley man and state transportation officials have settled a lawsuit over his attempt to get a driver’s license.

Mark Speckman was born without hands and says he was discriminated against as he tried to obtain a license in Wisconsin after moving from California where he had a clean driving record.

The Lawrence University football coach says he was given different requirements to get a license at Division of Motor Vehicles offices in Appleton, Green Bay and Oshkosh. Speckman says he was asked to take an extra test, even though his wife didn’t have to in order to get her license.

WBAY-TV says the Speckmans, DMV administrators and their attorneys met Wednesday and settled the case. Details were sealed.
