Justice Department gives up Washington Redskins name fight

June 30, 2017

RedskinsWASHINGTON — The Justice Department is giving up the legal fight over the name of the Washington Redskins.

In a letter to a federal appeals court, the department said last week’s Supreme Court decision in Matal v. Tam in favor of an Asian-American band calling itself the Slants means the NFL team will prevail in a legal battle to cancel the team’s trademarks because the name is disparaging to Native Americans.

“Consistent with Tam, the Court should reverse the judgment of the district court and remand the case with instructions to enter judgment in favor of Pro-Football,” Mark Freeman, an attorney for the Justice Department’s civil division, wrote to the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Oh dear. Given up. And the name of a Pro Football team was such an intelligent cause to on which expend national legal resources. Obama and Lynch must have had their heads pretty far up their bums to come up with that one.
    Next thing you know the DOJ will drop the Russia/Trump collusion hallucinations.
