A federal judge in Washington said that Metro’s rules for reviewing proposed advertisements for its buses and subway stations are applied inconsistently, and she called the transit agency’s approach “very random,” according to The Washington Post.

According to The Post, comments from U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan came during a court hearing in the latest challenge to Metro’s advertising policies. The judge said she would rule quickly on a request from the American Civil Liberties Union to permit the group to promote its imminent national conference in Metro ads.

In court filings, the ACLU said its planned posters are not “issue ads” banned by Metro but invitations designed to attract the attention of commuters and encourage attendance at the conference that begins June 10.
