GAYPWR wins in Georgia — really

An Atlanta gay man who sued the state after his requests for three separate gay-themed vanity license plates were denied settled his lawsuit on Wednesday.

James Cyrus Gilbert, who goes by Cyrus, filed a federal lawsuit in January against Robert G. Mikell, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Driver Services, after his requests for GAYPWR, GAYGUY and 4GAYLIB license plates were denied. He was told each of them were "unavailable," said his attorney, Cynthia Counts.
