    US Justice Department drops efforts to force Washington Redskins to change their name

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-Redskins.html

    The Justice Department has abandoned legal action to force the owner of the Washington Redskins to change the team's 'offensive' name.

    It comes after the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that stripping Asian-American band The Slants of their moniker violated their First Amendment rights.

    Mark Freeman, an attorney for the Justice Department's civil division, admitted in a letter that the ruling made further action against the Redskins pointless.

    The justices were unanimous in saying a 71-year-old trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes free speech rights.

    While Redskins owner Dan Snyder has not spoken out since the case was dropped, he did release a brief statement after the Slant's ruling on Monday, saying: 'I am THRILLED. Hail to the Redskins.'
