Amish Case Postponed
By Carrie Pond
Mayfield, KY – A Graves County judge has postponed any further action against Amish horse-drawn buggy drivers while they appeal their convictions for failing to display flashing lights and slow-moving vehicle symbols. District Judge Deborah Crooks Thursday scheduled a hearing for Sept. 24 to reevaluate the case that is now pending before the Kentucky Court of Appeals. The appeals court last month granted discretionary review for three Amish men who were convicted of failing to display the lights and orange triangular symbols on their black buggies. Jacob Gingerich, Levi Zook and Emanuel Yoder claim the law requiring the accessories violates their religious beliefs. Each of the men was fined $20 and ordered to pay $128 in court costs for not complying.
