The State of North Carolina is disagreeing with a judge's decision to ban a certain state license plate.

Last month, Judge James Fox ruled the controversial plate was unconstitutional, saying the state couldn't offer an anti-abortion license plate without offering one for those who support abortion rights.

The ruling also said that it was a violation of the first amendment.

The state filed an appeal to overturn that ruling Friday.
