I don't get this. Someone or some group was suing for the right to have a 
specialty plate on the grounds that another group was allowed to have one, 
the judge "threw the case out" (as in dismissed it) and that is a "victory 
for groups seeking to raise money via specialty tags"? I don't see how. It 
looks more like a defeat to me.
