Federal court rules North Carolina 'Choose Life' license plate unconstitutional | Fox News: "The state could appeal the panel's decision to the full appeals court or to the U.S. Supreme Court. Noelle Talley, spokeswoman for Attorney General Roy Cooper, said state attorneys were reviewing the ruling but had no further comment.
The central issue in the case was whether the specialty license plate is purely government speech, which would allow the state sole discretion over the message, or individual speech implicating the First Amendment. The appeals court concluded that the program is a blend of the two, but that it tilts heavily in favor of private expression."
