You Have to Take That Thing Off: Cancer Patient Sues DMV

    A cancer patient in New Jersey is suing the state’s Motor Vehicle Commission over her driver’s license photo.

    FOX’s Steve Rappoport has the story:

    Jennifer Giordano says she broke down sobbing when an employee at the agency’s office in Eatontown refused to use an old photo she brought with her to renew her driver’s license.

    The 40-year-old wears a headscarf to cover her balding head caused by chemotherapy. Giordano claims the employee told her, “you have to take that thing off” for a new picture.

    She’s suing for emotional distress, noting New Jersey law allows people undergoing medical treatment to use old photos for a driver’s license.

    Another employee eventually stepped in and gave Giordano a new license with the old photograph.
