OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A lawsuit challenging Nebraska’s denial of driver’s licenses to immigrants brought to the country illegally as children has been moved to federal court.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit last year in Lancaster County District Court on behalf of four Omaha residents. The lawsuit says Nebraska officials violated state law that requires state agencies to go through a public hearing and comment period before making significant changes to state rules and regulations. The lawsuit also says the policy also violates the state constitution’s right to due process.

The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office last week had the case transferred to federal court, saying that federal law created the issue on which the lawsuit is based.
