A Fargo atheist’s request for a personalized license plate reading “ISNOGOD” was approved Thursday by the North Dakota Department of Transportation.

The deity-denying license plate Brian Magee wanted was initially rejected last week by NDDOT officials, prompting Magee to appeal the decision to the state’s transportation director.

In a letter dated Thursday informing Magee his plate appeal was approved, Francis Ziegler, NDDOT’s director, said lawyers from the attorney general’s office told transportation officials that Magee has a legal right to the plate he had requested.

“I would count that as a ‘win,’ I guess,” Magee said.
